  Appartment building on Volodymyrska St. 20,22
by OlenaKyiv

Favorite thing: These building was built in 1898-1905 by the design of architect E. Yermakov. In early 1990 this building was in the most awful condition as many other buildings in this area: hollow broken windows, broken walls and floors. I would say that was a shame of Kiev's downtown. However, in late 1990 or maybe even in the new century (I may be mistaken about precise dates) the building was reconstructed and turned into new fashionable appartment building. However, I think, the type of the residents who can afford to live in this building didn't change with centuries - Kievs metropolitans, or elite as Kievans like to say.
