The Museum of Microminiature provides something even for atheists within this holiest of holies – and, boy, is it popular! The world’s smallest book (with some verses of Shevchenko), a balalaika with strings one-fourtieth the width of a human hair and a flea fitted with golden horseshoes are just some of his works of whimsy. Each is so small that microscopes are needed to view them, but you can occupy yourself with the brief English explanations while you wait. The museum also bears one of Kyiv’s great Everything is Illuminated –style creative English translations: ‘At the time of atmospheric precipitates exhibit is not function’.
