It’s hard to believe that this place isn’t a worldwide household name. The art is the most unique and memorable that I’ve seen. It should be #1 on your list of places to see in Kiev.

I saw it first time when I was a child, one month ago I went there again, and it’s still as amazing as many years ago. It’s increadible collection of art pieces.

The level of precision on such a microscopic scale is astonishing. It’s hard to believe these pieces were made by hand. We had an opportunity to meet the artist and have our picture taken with him.

when you are watching the "fine" art you only think why and how someone do something like these. Little prince is my favourite.

So, it is what it is. Am amazingly skillful thing to do but of limited (10 mins) interest. It's also rather weird that it is situated within the Lavra Monastery complex. And it's closed when raining! But opens immediately after it stops raining.

Situated inside the Lavra monastery complex, this miniature museum is generally missed by visitors. Buy this is one of the best thing to see inside the complex. To know the pain and patience the artist took to do these, one should go and see this....truly...More
