beach library Albena Bulgaria-unknownOn the sands of a Black Sea resort in Bulgaria, vacationers are encouraged to indulge in their favorite old-fashioned pastime: reading a book on the beach.

The library was the brain-child of German architect, Herman Kompernas, who designed the shelves from a material that is resistant to sun and water and stabilized the structure against the wind.
