Old bookstores… They have something magical. Take this store for example, it’s like you stepped into a Disney movie and once you open a book, you will get sucked into a world with weird, exotic creatures. In my opinion, they gave this store the perfect name: Centaur Boekhandel.
Books, books everywhere
This shop is located at the Laan van Meerdervoort for many years now. I did some research and this store
Inside you’ll find a huge collection of second hand old books, records and comics. One thing I really like is the small section with old books about The Hague, filled with cool black and white photos. You take a step back in time, just by turning one of the pages.
Piece of art
An other thing I like about Centaur is their collection of framed art and prints; for example original serigraphs by Karel Appel (you can see it in one of the pictures). You would expect these at a fancy gallery, but every once in a while Centaur sells them as well.
Besides books and art, this shop also sells many different postcards. I like the cards with old pictures of The Hague in particular.
So, what are you waiting for? Lets start the treasure hunt at Centaur!
