This remarkable building decorated with the fabulous figures of animals and chimeras like as they were took from peaked roofs of Notre Dame de Paris can be easily called the most unusual Kiev building. On the roof of the building are sitting good-natured toads with nereids, heads of rhinos and antelope are built into walls, drain pipes look like snakes and elephant trunks. Constructed on a steep slope house astonishes by one more details – from the front side it has only 3 floors and from back side whole 6!
This shot was taken in 2006 with my first digital camera Nikon E320, I decided to retouch this shot.
