House with Chimeras

“House with Chimeras” at 10 Bankova St. was erected as a rental house in 1901-1903 by prominent Kyiv architect W.Horodecki.

According to legend, he made a bet that he could build an edifice on the steep slope; and he won it due to a brilliant engineering solution. The building has three storeys facing the street, and six – the slope. Its exterior is decorated with figures of elephants, rhinos, antelopes, lizards, frogs, mermaids and other creatures. They all were made of cement by sculptor Elio Sala from Milan, Italy. Such decor can be explained by Horodecki’s passion to hunting.

Очень красивый дом - химеры на крыше как настоящие:) Если вы в Киеве впервые, обязательно запишитесь заранее на экскурсию. Дом с химерами находится в центре, рядом с остальными туристическими местами.

Дом поражает своей красотой как снаружи, так и внутри. Барельеф украшен таинственными скульптурами, которые можно рассматривать долго. По стилю напоминае работы Гауди. Горжусь тем, что это потрясающее здание спроектировал украинский архитектор!
