Popped into the Microminiatures Museum while visiting Pechersk-Lavra and spent a fun 15 minutes there. We came early morning and were the only ones there so weren't able to sneak any photos. Despite this it was fascinating to view the intricate art through a microscope,...More

Amazingly detailed micro miniatures. One more appealing than the other but nevertheless very nice to see.

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.

I was really amazed with this art exhibition. I have never seen such exhibition and micro sculptures and portraits before. I cannot believe that a human being was able to create such small, detailed and beautiful objects. I highly recommend this place. Unfortunately some of...More

The level of precision on such a microscopic scale is astonishing. It’s hard to believe these pieces were made by hand. We had an opportunity to meet the artist and have our picture taken with him.

when you are watching the "fine" art you only think why and how someone do something like these. Little prince is my favourite.
