Situated on Bankova Street, directly across from the Presidential Administration Building, is one of the most recognizable of Kyiv’s landmark buildings..The House with Chimeras. It was designed and built in 1901-1902 by the architect Vladislav Gorodetsky.
He orginally intended to use the building as “upscale” apartments but financial problems caused him to lose the property as collateral on a defaulted loan.
Today, it is used as an official government building for meeting with official state visitors.
