Mezhyhirya Private Tour

Mezhyhirya was the state residence since 1935.

From 2007 till 2014, Yanukovych lived here, first as a Prime Minister and afterwards as a President of Ukraine.

He spent more than $ 1 billion of the state budget money to turn Mezhyhirya into a luxurious complex.

After the ex-president’s escape, the residence became the largest Museum of Corruption in the world and is open to visitors.

    Since the early days of Kievan Rus, there was a monastery in Mezhyhirya. According to legend, the library of Prince Yaroslav the Wise was kept in it. In 1935, the monastery was completely destroyed and a residence for the Soviet statesmen was built on its territory.

    From 2007 to 2014, the former President Yanukovych built an incredibly luxury 140-hectare complex, enclosed by a 5-meter fence.

    In 2016, Transparency International named Yanukovych the number one top corruption symbol in the world.

    Today Mezhyhirya is one of the Ukraine’s main attractions and a vivid example of how power and money can influence a person.
