Got this beautiful building today... It's considered as one of the most mystical from Kiev and I can understand why....Look at al the mythical creatures on the roof like dolphins, frogs, mermaids and a lot of other big animals. It is also an official residence of the Ukraine President.

House with Chimaeras or Gorodetsky House an Art Nouveau building in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Originally an upmarket apartment building, it was built in the period of 1901–1902 by noted architect Vladislav Gorodetsky, who was regarded as the Gaudí of Kiev.
The "House with Chimaeras" derives its popular name from its ornate decorations depicting various scenes of exotic animals and hunting scenes, which were added because Gorodetsky was an avid hunter.
