The Russian State Library houses one of the most impressive collections of Oriental literature in the world. To store and work with this fund, the Centre of Oriental Literature was created in the library. Here, books from China, India, South Africa and other countries are examined, distributed in catalogs and given to readers for use. More in our story.
We would like to thank the Russian State Library for help in organising the filming.
