Tour in the historic Lipki Area

Aristocratic Lipki mansions keep many secrets of their former inhabitants – bankers, entrepreneurs, sugar- manufacturers. Given the fact that Kiev was the “sugar capital” of the Russian Empire, it is not surprising that the most luxurious Kiev mansions belonged to the sugar manufacturers. Mariinsky and Klovsky Palaces, House of  Weeping Widow, Pink Castle and Chocolate House will slightly open you their secrets on this tour.
