It's really cool, but there is a small inconvenience. You are not allowed to get into the territory where the house is located. So you have to enjoy from the distance...

Most interesting and particular building in the city. Just a huge pity they did not allow us in. Anyway I strongly advice to find it and take a look.

Must arrange tour ahead of time, but it's a fascinating space with interesting history. Great area near lots of other interesting things to do/see

Impressive, over-the-top designs on the exterior of the building. Make a point to pass by, as this is one of a very unique design.

We were stopped by (polite) guards from approaching the building but the chimeras we observed were fancy looking enough.

Certainly worth the short walk to see. The architect certainly meant to draw attention to his creation and I believe he certainly succeeded. While unable to enter the real show is outside anyway. Don't forget your camera !

No tourists are allowed, The site is officially closed, its guarded by the army and no one is allowed near it. Don't bother going.

Most areas and view points around this place not accessible. It is their answer to Gaudi and yes from the outside what you can see it is interesting but there are so many amazing places to see in Kiev that I would not bother with...More

It is so incradible object but inaccessible house. This House is a Official residence of the presidential administration. But You can book excursion in advance. I booked it at Interesniy Kiev agancy. The excursion can take times about 1 hour.
