The castle of Richard ''The Lion Heart''

The castle of Richard ''The Lion Heart''

The castle of Richard “the Lion Heart” – is a metaphoric name of the house on the Andriyivsky Descent 15, in Kiyv. It’s a memorial of architecture of the XIX century built in British Gothic style. It was called so by Viktor Nekrasov, in honor of the king Richard “the Lion Heart”, the character from novel “Aivengo” written by Walter Scott. The house that looks like an ancient castle is built on the relief of the mountain Vozdyhalniza near the Andreevska church. The monumental facades of the building are decorated with the architectural elements of castle-palace style – different towers, steeples, cogged walls etc. On the left side of the building there is a big tower with serfdom elements. In different periods many famous Ukrainian artists lived here. Such as F.Krasnitskiy, I.Makushenko, F.Balavenskiy. On the front of the house there is a memorial tablet with the name of Ukrainian painter G.Diadchenko (who lived there from 1909 till 1921). In the Museum of One Street there are a few exhibitions devoted to this building and to people who lived there. In the Museum you can see personal belongings and artistic works of the inhabitants of the house, and also photos and plans of the Richard castle.
