This is one of the main architectural venues that you can visit in this city. It stands out especially for its strange style, called by specialists as "Art Nouveau". originally it was only a building of private apartments, although very luxurious.
The importance that this construction had on the professional life of Gorodetsky, was so high that many of his colleagues and admirers began to call him then "the Gaudí of Kiev". This was in reference to his good taste, and the exquisiteness of his creation.

This is one of the weirdest, yet most interesting sights and buildings in Kiev. Its construction was conceived by the eccentric architect Gorodetsky in 1902. It is decorated with a multitude of exotic animals, which reflect Gorodetsky passion for hunting. It is located opposite of the office of the President of Ukraine.

What an architecture! Definitely " Art Nouveau" with a twist - with lots of animal gargoyles covering every corner of the building. Currently an official building of the Ukrainian President but it is ok to take photos (from afar)
A surprise find in Ukraine - because if you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't go looking for it!

Πρόκειται για ένα ιδιαίτερο κτίριο, το οποίο είναι διακοσμημένο με γλυπτά τα οποία αναπαριστούν την πανίδα της περιοχής αλλά και διάφορα μυθικά πλάσματα. Αξίζει να γυρίσετε γύρω γύρω για να δείτε όλες τις γωνιές, αφού η καθεμία έχει διαφορετική παράσταση.Βρίσκεται σε ωραία τοποθεσία με κυβερνητικά κτίρια τριγύρω. Επίσης, υπάρχει αρκετή αστυνόμευση στην περιοχή και καλό είναι να έχετε μαζί την ταυτότητα ή το διαβατήριο.
