Ukraine: discover the strange House of Chimeras in Kiev

Exotic animals and hunting scenes are what can be found on the art nouveau House of Chimeras, in Kiev, Ukraine.

I thought the house was called based on the chimeras in Greek mythology, but actually it refers to an architectural style using fantastic or mystical figures used for decoration purposes.

It is quite a surprising building, just in front of the Presidential Administration office, and is definitely worth to stop by it when you are in Kiev. The House was designed by Horodecki who is considered to be the Gaudí of Kiev.

  1. Cannot see your photos for some reason, even when I click on the icon. I thought it might be a blip but this is the second time I’ve tried. Any idea?
