What feelings and emotions can a paradoxical combination of architectural styles evoke on the streets of Kyiv? You will learn this by observing how the city has changed in different periods of history. Let's see what Kyiv was like before the Soviet Union, how the city was transformed during the Soviet period. You will enjoy an extraordinary architectural cocktail that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. You will feel like just an "ant" next to the government buildings in the Stalinist Empire style. And then, you will feel like a member of the royal family, admiring the Imperial Palace and the Royal Garden. We will warm ourselves with hot coffee in an old mansion next to the majolica fireplace and I will tell you its secrets.
I'm curious what you say about the mansion, which seemed to have risen from the depths of a fabulous lake and now mermaids, toads, snakes and elephants live on its roof and facades?) We will look into the Lutheran Church to the sound of an organ and plunge into the atmosphere of unusual interiors of the early 20th century in the "Chocolate House".
We will meet in the very heart of Kiev, where government buildings and old mansions are. During the walk, I will invite you for coffee to warm up and relax. We will visit the old house-museum. I want to make our meeting as comfortable as possible and full of beautiful and unusual impressions)

Do you think feelings are overrated? I think feelings are all we have)
I have a great feeling of love for my city with a rich and unusual history. I like to explore the secrets hidden behind the facades of old mansions and watch how quickly time, just, before my eyes, changes the city! I was born in Kyiv, and all my childhood was spent here. I remember the Soviet period well and I can easily compare what has changed. As an architect, I am especially interested in all the architectural contrasts and paradoxes that I observe on the streets of the city.
I will gladly share my experience with you and I am curious to know what feelings and emotions this architectural cocktail of different styles evokes in Kyiv for you?)

Elena is absolutely amazing — this is not the first time we are using her to guide us through Kiev, and definitely not the last time! Her knowledge, personality and attention to her guests is so kind and special. Highly recommend her to anyone who’s interested in exploring Kiev. She speaks several languages and can accommodate many different groups.
