Surely the funkiest building in Kiev

Today, with the help of a friend, I stumbled upon a very cool buliding in Kiev. Будинок з химерами (House with Chimaeras) is a building a few hundred yards up the hill from the city's main square. It dates from around the beginning of the 20th century and the messrs responsible were architect Vladimir Gorodetsky and Italian sculptor Emilio Sala. It was divided into floor flats-one on each floor-the top one of which was of course Gorodetsky's own. Anyway, it's cool. I particularly liked the frogs!
