The House with Chimeras, Kyiv (Kiev)

Originally built partly as a publicity stunt, The House with Chimeras features a host of intricate animal sculptures and a structure primarily made from cement. The brainchild of the architect Vladislav Gorodetsky, the request for concrete construction was made by the director of the building company as a way to showcase its versatility. Explore the building and view the menagerie of creatures adorning the walls, including rhinos, lions, catfish, and an array of mythical species. Because the building still hosts ceremonies and official events, it's really only accessible from the outside.
