Full description
Lypky is the de facto government quarter of Ukraine and hosts the buildings of Parliament, the Presidential Administration and Government. Lypky became known only recently in the 19th century, and during this time it became known as an elite district. Many houses here were built by German architects here in the Art Nouveau style.

Throughout this tour, you will visit the Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes (dedicated to the Revolution of Dignity), Horodetskyi Street (with buildings in the Art Nouveau style), the Ivan Franko Theatre, the famous House with Chimeras, and Lyuteranska Street (where the German community lived and where the Lutheran church is located).

You will also see the Presidential Administration of Ukraine, the National Bank of Ukraine, the Parliament of Ukraine (the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine) and the the Government of Ukraine the (the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine). Also worthy of your attention are the Villas of Lypky, which include the Chocolate House, the House of Baron Iskul Hildenbrand, the House of Liebermann, and the House of the Weeping Widow.
