    Mezhyhirya Residence Museum
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Since the early days of Kievan Rus, there was a monastery in Mezhyhirya. According to legend, the library of Prince Yaroslav the Wise was kept in it. In 1935, the monastery was completely destroyed and a residence for the Soviet statesmen was built on its territory. From 2007 to 2014, the former President Yanukovych built an incredibly luxury 140-hectare complex, enclosed by a 5-meter fence. In 2016, Transparency International named Yanukovych the number one top corruption symbol in the world. Today Mezhyhirya is one of the Ukraine’s main attractions and a vivid example of how power and money can influence a person. YOU WILL SEE: LUXURY - Famous “Honka” – the world’s largest wooden palace. The most expensive materials were used for its decoration and interior. - Restaurant on the water – a replica of the Spanish galleon, trimmed with gold leaves, marble and crystal. - Wellness center that can compete with the most elite spa. Here you will see a cryogenic sauna, an oxygen chamber, an artificial salt cave etc. EXOTIC - Pond with exotic fish. It is filled with water from ten artesian wells and never freezes. - Zoo with exotic birds and animals (including the American rhea, Australian emu, and kangaroo). - Training center for elite dogs (including the Chinese mastiff which is the most expensive breed in the world). - Exotic trees, bushes and flowers. MUSEUMS - In Mezhyhirya, there is a Museum of retro cars, where you can see collection cars, Soviet representative limousines and even military equipment; - “Honka” is the main element of the Museum of Corruption with many unique (and insanely expensive) things such as golden chandeliers, a music box that costs $ 0.5 million, a flower pot decorated with snake skin, Steinway & Sons piano etc.
