Kiev is also a perfect city for everybody who is interest in arts. For example, there are outstanding mosaics created by Vladimir Ovchinnikov. Even the history of those mosaics is really exciting. Their author was working for many years as a director of the Museum of Western and Oriental Art. During these years, he was also working on these mosaics. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending how we look at this), he was not allowed to put them on the museum. Therefore, he decide to decorate with them the walls of the museum’s courtyard. Thanks to this, you can admire those amazing pieces of art outside. However, if you are a fan of art you will find there also many other very interesting places. It might be enough to mention such places as for example PinchukArtCentre, Bohdan and Varvara Khanenko National Museum of Arts as well as Museum of Russian Art.
