“Fascinating walk by”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This house warrants a detour off one's walking route around Kiev since it is just a few blocks off Khreschatyk Street and in a lovely area with beautiful up-scale shopping opportunities. It warrants a few minutes of just observing all of the very interesting architectural features of the house. One can't get into the house, but just viewing the outside structure is interesting.

“An extraordinary house”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The house is covered in gargoyles, frogs, elephants and other scary monsters. Well worth visiting - by day or eerie night lights!

“Concrete Gone Wild”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

You must see this mansion covered with concrete animals, real and imagined. A concrete entrepreneur wanted to show what could be done with concrete and did he ever. You might just spend 15 minutes there or much longer if you try to identify all the creatures. The house, which is now used for government functions is not accessible. Look at the outside - remarkable.
