The title of President Yanukovych deprived on the 04-th of February 2015 by The Supreme Rada of Ukraine voices 281 of deputies. The residence located ten kilometers from Kiev, and has area about 144 hectares near the Kiev reservoir. Until 1935 in the territory of modern residence was Mezhyhirya Monastery. But in 1934, immediately after the relocation of the capital from Kharkov to Kiev leaders chosen territory for a place for their summer homes until 2007, it was considered the seat of government, but then was put into private ownership. Was ordered to blow up the remaining housing Mezhigorie Holy Transfiguration Monastery. The least worried about the fate of the ancient monastery, known by the chronicles XII century. During the demolition was discovered underground collection of manuscripts.

Trip to Mezhigorie will allow you to experience unforgettable and conflicting feelings. On one hand, it is beautiful and very well maintained park, on the other hand is a collection of expensive works of art and architecture, without any meaning and logic, which is privately owned by one family and kept at taxpayers. We cannot ignore the main five storeys house – three wooden and two stone HONKY. The interior of the house is rich and fascinating. All around sparkles from a huge amount of gold and crystal. A prominent place is a large icon of the Mother of God, thus emphasizing the sanctity of ostentatious former owner. Many tourists compare this place with Versailles.

No less popular among visitors are: The golden bowl – top greed and ignorance; very interesting is Car park (worth about $ 800 000), where a collection of vintage cars and motorcycles: total in Mezhyhirya three pools with fountains and the island: Outdoor tennis court; Bathhouse; Sports club; Consists of a recreation center, bowling alley, indoor tennis courts and underground shooting range; Horse Club; Office building; A massive two-storey building is located right at the main entrance to the Mezhigorie close to him – a boiler room; The complex of greenhouses where vegetables grow; Heliport with hangar;  Also at the museum has zoo with amazing for Ukrainian latitudes animals.
