Tour description provided by Viator

Unique tour to the Mezhigorie Ukrainian President Yanukovych's countryside residence located ten kilometres from Kiev, and has area about 345 acres (140 hectare). Trip to Ukrainian president Yanukovych's countryside residence 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 story house – three wooden and two stone HONKY. The interior of the Viktor Yanukovych 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.
