We introduce a notion of topological quandle. Given a topological quandle Q we associate to every classical link L in R^3 an invariant J_Q(L) which is a topological space (defined up to a homeomorphism).
The space J_Q(L) can be interpreted as a space of colorings of a diagram of the link L with colors from the quandle Q.
