Strahov Monastery Library in Prague. This is a screen shot from the 40 gigabyte panorama you may view below.

360cities.net posted a 40 gigabyte panorama of the baroque Philosophical Hall containing 42,000 volumes in the Strahov Monastery Library in Prague.  

The spectacular image is particularly useful since tourists visiting the monastery may only glimpse this library room from one roped-off entrance. When the image was posted on YouTube and on 360cities.net it was the largest interior panoramic image taken to date, showing all aspects of the room in the smallest detail.

♦ An article published in Wired magazine on March 29, 2011 provided production details, multiple images, and a video showing how the panorama was created.
