  Budynok with monsters
by OlenaKyiv

It was built by Horodetskiy who was a hunter and he built many monster who look like some animals. There are many iideas about the nature of this building.

One of them was like Horodetskiy made a bet with his friend that he will build house in such dangerous place where it is right now (on the hill) and it will be uncommon. He used concret first time in Ukrainian history (maybe even in European history). Other idea was that his friend was the owner of factory of concret so this house was the ad for this factory.
Next story hat his daughter made suicide in this place and because of this he made this house with nightmares whiche daughter had.
You will see many of stories. I have heard real one on radio, but I am really sorry because I forgot it :-(((
