The Chocolate House is one of Kiev's more unusual buildings, and the famed work of architecture stands out on the street because of its chocolate coloured walls. Dating back to the turn of the 20th century, the house was built in a Venetian Renaissance style, and the unique design has turned into a major landmark. You can visit the interior of the house to see the opulent designs inside too!

La Chocolate House a Kiev è una delle famose dimore del quartiere di Pechersk. Nel 2009 l'edificio è stato ricostruito, replicando la forma originale e trasformando l'interno in una galleria e uno dei rami del Museo di Arte Russa. Oggi, tutti possono godere del suo splendore, passeggiare tra sale e sale lussuose e ammirare incredibili dipinti.
