Horlivka Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 416 photos
Razumov Miniature Book Musdeum is located in the building of the city library at 132A Victory Avenue.
It’s a good idea to make an appointment before paying a visit and having a guided tour.
I had a guided tour here and wrote down a lot of information.
The museum has a small hall with exhibitions of miniature books and microbooks.
It has books published in 57 countries in 103 languages.
Those are both ancient and modern, handwritten and printed books.
The museum collection comprises 8,500 books now, among them 7,008 books were presented by the museum founder Benjamin Razumov (1915-2001) who had collected such books for decades.
He left his entire collection by his will to the city in 1991.
Lots of different miniature books and microbooks.
It’s a unique museum, the only one of such kind in Ukraine.

You can even see a unique book called speck of dust whose dimensions are sixty times smaller than a poppy seed.
You can see the book through the microscope and read two poems by Alexander Pushkin there.
