Mixing, the connection of dissimilar styles, ideas and views — all this was harmoniously embodied in this building, which became known as the "Chocolate House" because of its brown colour and appearance, which resembles the chocolate bar.

The house was built in 1901 and is the former mansion of a famous merchant and patron of art Simeon Mogilevtsev. Thanks to him, in Kiev in his time were built many schools, hospitals and even water supply system for sitizens. The two-storey building with large basement and a mansard over the extension decorated in the style of the Italian Renaissance. The appearance of the building has been preserved almost in its original form.

In the interior of the mansion and its decor alternating motifs of almost all historic styles, which gave names to each of the rooms: the Moorish, Renaissance, Nouveau, Rococo, Byzantine and French.

Currently it hosts art exhibitions, classical music concerts, children's events, lectures on art history for children and adults, tours of the mansion and other cultural activities.

Very nice interior when we were there was an exhibition of the Russian artist impressionist (the name unfortunately I do not remember ) more affected by the experience.
Remove the inside can and costs 30 UAH / but only the interior, the interior costs 500 UAH.
In conclusion, visit, description does not convey the atmosphere and feel of the interior.

Очень красивый интерьер, в момент когда мы там были, проходила выставка русского художника импрессиониста (имя к сожалению не помню ) что еще более сказалось на впечатлении.
Снимать внутри можно, стоит 30 грн / но лишь интерьер, себя на фоне интерьера стоит уже 500 грн.
В заключение хочу сказать, посетите, описание не передаёт атмосферы и вида интерьера.

Chocolate house or mansion S. S. After an incredibly beautiful house with amazing interiors. Each room has its own unique style and charm. In the building for a long time carried out the restoration work,but now,by paying a token money for the entrance ticket, you can already enjoy all the architectural delights of decoration of the mansion.
Chocolate house art exhibitions, classical music concerts and other events,so you can always combine the pleasant with the useful! Highly recommend! And the caveat to photograph in the halls of the free are not allowed.

Шоколадный домик или особняк С. С. Могилевцева - невероятно красивый дом с удивительными интерьерами. Каждый зал имеет свой неповторимы стиль и шарм. В здании долго проводили реставрационные работы,но сейчас,заплатив символические деньги за входной билет, уже можно насладиться всеми архитектурными изысками оформления особняка.
В Шоколадном домике проводятся художественные выставки, концерты классической музыки и другие мероприятия,поэтому всегда можно совместить приятное с полезным! Очень советую! И нюанс - фотографировать в залах бесплатно не разрешают.

A special place. Is a branch of the Kyiv National Museum of Russian Art. Too bad enough in disrepair. But even in this form, you can feel the era! Often exhibitions, including children, for what loyal employees of the museum - great respect!

Особливе місце. Є філією Київського національного музею російського мистецтва. Шкода, в досить запущеному стані. Але навіть у такому вигляді можна відчути епоху! Часто проходять виставки, в тому числі дитячі, за що відданим працівникам музею - велика повага!

The house is steeped in history from the NKVD building to house the Museum of Russian art. There are exhibitions, concerts, various cultural events. Built in the Renaissance style, and inside...come take a look.

Дом с богатой историей от здания НКВД до дома Музея русского искусства. Здесь проходят выставки, концерты, всевозможные культурные мероприятия. Построен в стиле ренессанса, а внутри...приходите посмотрите.
