It's incredible how all this microminiatures were made just by hand! You can also meet with the author of the microminiatures if you come earlier (I was visiting just before closing). It seems that he made the microminiatures between 2 and 4 am when everybody...More

Fortunately...More

It’s hard to believe that this place isn’t a worldwide household name. The art is the most unique and memorable that I’ve seen. It should be #1 on your list of places to see in Kiev.
