  • This is a unique castle-like building, located on Andriivski Descent. We could not figure out if this place is an attraction on its own, or just an architectural gimmick.  more »
  • The andriyivskyy descent a lot of interesting things: 2 beautiful Museum, a monument to Bulgakov, the lovely balcony with a black cat, a fine dining restaurant "for two hares", St. Andrew's Church, finally. But Richard Castle, certainly the most beautiful building. This clean, stylized medieval knights there near yet gorgeous Lookout, it, in my opinion, described by Bulgakov's "the white guard". View of the Dnieper River from there. View of the Castle too.

  • For the first time in the castle of Richard I got in the late 70 's or early 80 's. This House standing on the andriyivsky under number 15 was followed by House of Bulgakov. Is not superfluous to note that in the 19 century andreevskiy spusk was St. Andrew's rise because the numbering of houses went from poshtova square bottom to the top.

  • It still doesn't function. After repair it looks worse like modern fake. Still it is old and beautiful building. In its heart.
  • I don't even know what this thing is doing there
  • One of the first foreign investments in Kiev. Seems like there are problems with ownership. It was never operating since 80th.
  • The castle is fine, but the ghost, which leaves in the hill at the building produces much more fun
  • Didn't go inside, thought it would be less modern
