Around the globe, the post-second-world-war years were a period of optimism and extreme experimentation. Ukraine wasn't an exception. That was the time when usually dull and grey Soviet architecture started to get more expressive forms, when local architects were attempting to transform the city into the environment for materialization of artistic thinking – in contrast to the strict unification of city space by typical construction and residential blocks. Abraham Miletskyj, Edward Bilsky, Florian Yuriyev - here are just a few names of the creators of the era whose names are known in the architectural world, and whose works still can be found in the city. And the works remain in the global architectural heritage and attract visitors from throughout the world. Today the buildings are often neglected, so there are chances that they will disappear in 10 or so years. So hurry up to see them and learn more about Ukrainian modernism and brutalism in architecture, as well as about history of the country of the time. Here are objects we will visit:
- Hotel 'Salut'
- Ex-Pioneers' Palace
- House of Furnitures
- Vernadsky Library
- Kyiv's Crematorium
- Ukravtodor
- House of Cinema
All they are situated in different parts of the city, so we will move between them by car.

I’m an avid traveled and the more I travel the more I love my home city. Kyiv is an amazing place to visit: it’s more than 1000 years old and full of attractions, from historical monuments to culinary and cultural scenes. And one of the attractions is the architecture. Being an ex-journalist and blogger writing about Kyiv, I’ve been exploring it for years – myself and in conversations with professional architects. And that’s how I came to the conclusion that one of the most interesting architectural features of Kyiv is its Soviet Modernism heritage. Why? Because it’s unique, interesting from historical point of view, and… vanishing. Yes, in 10 years you will probably won’t be able to see the buildings anymore – they will be either rebuilt or ruined. So the best time to come and see is now.

Lena was a fantastic guide, she showed me wonderful sights of Kyiv, shared a lot of architectural, historical and personal insights. It was a very special experience for people who are looking for art not only in museums and galleries, but also in the city itself.
