Mezhyhirya Residence is not just a beautiful park, it's also a museum of Ukrainian corruption, where you can see the arrogant luxury in which Ukrainian officials live.
Why does this place attract so many visitors? The answer is quite simple. This luxurious residence or as it is called the Museum of Ukrainian Corruption gives a flashy answer to the question: where the taxpayers' money go. After all, judging by the size and fanciful luxury of buildings and adjacent territory, not one billion of the country's budget was spent on the convenience of the former president of Ukraine.
