At the beginning of the 20th century, the works of well-know Kyiv architect Wladyslaw Horodecki were often represented on the postcards from Kyiv:  the Museum of Antiques and Art, the 6-storey “skyscraper”, the Karaite Kenesa, the St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Cathedral. But Horodecki became famous when his own house was constructed on the steep slope of Bankova Street in Kyiv. Find out about the legendary bet of Horodecki and his House with Chimaeras – in the documentary series “The Game of Fate” by VIATEL Studio narrated by Natalka Sopit.
