My parents wanted me to visit Ukraine, their homeland. I speak, read and write Ukrainian and studied its history and culture, so for me it was a unique and memorable trip-I was 21 and visited relatives from both sides in Lviv, Western Ukraine. Lviv is an old city, with historical buildings and beautiful parks-in fact, Ukrainians have a green thumb,... More

This should be a sister school to Arizona State - the red and yellow paint scheme of the building matches the Sun Devil colors.

This is just a red building in front of Taras Shevchenko's wonderfull park. The color is distinctive, but you cant guess what the building is without asking around.

Pros: The University is named after the famous 19 century Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko – the spiritual "father of the Nation" and is situated right across the Shevchenko park and the poet's monument. The University's main "Red Building" is most famous one for its distinctive deep red color. There is an orange color building of the University library right next... More

I walk there quite often when in Kiev, frankly speaking, in my opinion - there's nothing fantastic there.

I have never been inside this building and do not know much about the university; however, it's rather rare to see a red building like that. We enjoyed taking pictures in front of it.

Nice place to visit. The red building looks really unusual and monumental. The little park there is very cosy and a good place to get a breath of fresh air in the city center. Besides it's very close to the museum of Russian culture (3-5 min walk)

The red facade is very monumental. This building is interesting, is the main University in town. Also the park nearby with the statue of T. Shevchenko is very nice and quite especially during summer months, out of the city center traffic, being in the city center. You can enjoy a fresh beer in the tables outside many koisks.
