  • Up on Gorodetsky St: Kyiv Modern - Kiev

one of the finest examples of Modern. the house has a "horse-shoe" entrance, two "sad" eyes. the very top of the house is decorated by Bacchus head and swamp foliage (and now even real trees). it also has nicely forged balconies.

the house also has two "confusing" dates on the facade - 1886 and 1948. the first refers to the date when the Mering's estate was sold; the second - to the last restoration date. pretty obvious, the building needs another one. though I think the building is still very appealing.

Address: 15, Gorodetsky St.
