“Chitalka” is an open-air library which has been organized since 2011 by the Austrian Honorary Consulate and Austrian library with the support of Raiffeisenbank. Every summer the square in front of the gymnasium No. 9 in the centre of Yekaterinburg is transformed for a month into a cozy reading hall where thousands of books of all literary arts are available for the public. The books are provided by the Austrian library and partners of the project. The visitors have the unique opportunity to spend some time sitting on comfortable beanbag chairs, reading books and enjoying the special atmosphere of reading in the city center.
