The House with Chimeras, Kiev

3.7
Originally built partly as a publicity stunt, The House with Chimeras features a host of intricate animal sculptures and a structure primarily made from cement. The brainchild of the architect Vladislav Gorodetsky, the request for concrete construction was made by the director of the building company as a way to showcase its versatility. Explore the building and view the menagerie of creatures adorning the walls, including rhinos, lions, catfish, and an array of mythical species. Because the building still hosts ceremonies and official events, it's really only accessible from the outside.

  • The house with chimeras is a really important attraction of our city. Magnificent sculptures decorate the facade, it is a pity that now such "decorations" people do not suffer. It is best to come to look at the house sutra, hours to 11, then the light falls as it should, and the sun does not blind, and tourists are not so much as in the daytime. To see all the statues fluently - enough and half an hour. But the longer you look at the house, at its individual details, the more interesting you notice, the "history" of this place is revealed. So I would recommend staying at home for at least an hour. Very meditative and relaxing occupation, in a hurry you will not see much. By the way, children are not particularly interested in such children, except that your child is interested in sculpture. So it's better to come look at the house without small children.

  • The house with chimeras is one of the main attractions of the capital. This art nouveau building was built at the beginning of the last century by the architect Gorodetsky. It is decorated with sculptors of the animal world and fairy-tale characters. It's beautiful.
