What to expect

Explore the residence of the ex-president of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych in Mezhyhirya, which is one of the most striking and impressive places in Ukraine. This tour will help you understand the character of the ex-president and the current political situation in the country. You will realize how excessive richness and power affects a person.

Once you meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel, you will drive to the Mezhyhirya residence in Novi Petrivtsi village. The residence, surrounded by a high fence, occupies the territory of 1.8 ha and amazes the visitors with its splendor. Perfectly cut trees, tennis court, non-freezing lake, a farm with ostriches, peacocks, pheasants and other rare kinds of birds and animals are just some of the highlights of Mezhyhirya.

With your local guide, you will explore the territory and may visit a training center for elite breeds of dogs, bath complex and museum of retro cars (optional, for additional fee).

The most impressive building of the residence is, without a doubt, the house of V. Yanukovych called “Honka” (optional visit, for additional fee). If you go inside the “Honka”, you will be impressed with extremely expensive materials, furniture and accessories. There are plenty of very costly and exceptional items in each room, like a Swiss music box, which costs half a million dollars, golden chandeliers, “Steinway & Sons” piano etc. Excessive luxury is present in every single detail of the interior that creates a controversial impression.

After you explore this “museum” of corruption, your driver will drop you off at your hotel.
