Mariinsky Park is one of the largest green spaces in Kiev, venerated by many as the city's “soul.” The 8.9 hectare English-style park was commissioned in 1874 by Maria Alexandrovna, spouse of Emperor Alexander II, on a former military ground, and was laid out by O.G. Nedzelskiy. Later, shrubs and ornamental trees had been planted all over the territory. Some of them have survived WWII and can still be admired in the park.

State Museum Of Toys

7) State Museum Of Toys

The idea of having a museum of toys in Kiev originated in 1933, when the municipal authorities searched for a place in the city to house the collection of toys so popular in those days. In 1936, the first toy exhibition opened in Kiev, although, because of the strained political situation, caused by the looming World War II, the museum project had to be abandoned.

Museum of the Toilet History

8) Museum of the Toilet History

The Museum of Toilet History is by far one of the most unusual institutions in Kiev. Although in many other countries the toilet issue has been a regular, if not dominant, part of local culture, the former USSR always considered, for some reason, that sitting on a toilet was too intimate a part of human life and, thus, must be hidden from the prying eyes of advanced democracies. The main idea of this museum is to show people how wonderful it is to discuss toilets, study their evolution...   view more
