We saw it during a free walking tour. The architecture is very nice, but so is its story. It seems it was one of the most modern of its time and they actually added some floors to it later. The gryphon sculptures outside are not random either as gryphons were said to be protecting gold. Worth seeing if you go... More

I'm not sure you can go inside but the architecture is very interesting. I wouldn't go out of my way to make a special trip to see it but as it is very close to the House with Chimeras it is worth a look.

The building of the National Bank of Ukraine amuses with its design, I just love to make some detailed photos of it from time to time. There are some buildings made in unique style in Kiev by one of the most known architect here as this one. Its modern and at the same time enchanted with gothic elements, bright colour... More

This is a beautiful old building, I wanted to get better pictures of it but it is on a busy street and there were protesters camped (yes, tents and such) in front and carrying signs so I stayed on other side of street and did not linger in the area.

This building had some decent architecture. It was OK to check being that I was in the area. But I would't make a special trip just for this.

The on-going protest camp outside the front doors to this lovely building does not detract from the beauty of the architecture of this building (the protest is in anger at corrupt financial practices - what a surprise!!). A beautiful building.

I love this building, although it looks a lot like a cake. It is situated in wonderful neigborhood with many interesting houses from second half of XIX century, so it is really worth a walk. By the way, it was rebuilt in the 30th to build one more floor, but zou can hardlz notice this innovation, as it was made... More
