About the Library
Since its inception the Library has collected nearly 220,000 volumes of legal publications, legislation, political science, modern history, philosophy, sociology, economics, culture, encyclopaedias and reference books. The core of the book collection consists of Czech parliamentary documents and laws from eighteen other foreign parliaments.
In accordance with the Act on the State Preservation of Monuments, the historically most valuable part of the library collection was even proclaimed a cultural monument by the Ministry of Culture in 2000.
The exceptional title from our historic collection part is the only manuscript in the ownership of the Parliamentary library – „Práwa saszká“ (= Das sächs. Stadtrecht, Saxon Law) from 15th century.
