Mezhyhirya, the Yanukovych Place

Originally it was the site of a female monastery. According to Wikipedia, the monastery buildings were finally demolished in the 1930s to give way for a summer residence for Politburo members. During his tenure as Prime Minister of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych somehow managed to become owner of the place and made it into his private residence. After he had fled from Kiev and subsequently was ousted from office, the Ukrainian state retook ownership.

Mezhyhirya is now open for public visits, although at the time of my visit, the only building you could get inside was the sauna. You can view Mezhyhirya from two different angles. You can simply come here to stroll around and enjoy the gardens as a relaxing change to the buzz in Kiev. Or you come here to see it as a document what can happen when a country has a corrupt leader. My intention was rather the latter, and this also explains the abundance of pictures in this suite. I simply like to share this madness with you. There was no information material available in English, why many pictures are just Me

hhzyhirya with a number.
