Interesting, unique building, next to city center, 10 minutes walk from Kreshatyk bvd. A must when you visit Kiev.

“Pure, delightful madness”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

It's a bit of an uphill hike from the Kreshatyk boulevard to get there, but the building is too magnificently eccentric to miss. It looks distinctly like the set for a horror movie, but the grotesque creatures squatting and sliding along the facade and parapet are cheerfully entertaining rather than creepy. It's in a very handsome square, but don't sit on the inviting steps of the government building opposite - I was politely told this wasn't permitted.

“House of chimeras”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Really nice to walk by especially for fairytale lovers but it is a pity that you can not enter. Really unique style for a home.
Best to include in a city center walk.
