About the place

The Art Nouveau mansion was built in 1907 by the architect E. Bradtmann, commissioned by the Poltava merchant of the 2nd guild of S. Arshavsky. In 1918 the building was nationalized, to this day government structures are located in it. The facade is adorned with a sad woman's face, over which rain drips in the rain, and it seems that the mask is crying. Hence the popular name of the mansion.

The building earned its nickname because when it rains water pours over the woman's face on the facade, running down her cheeks like tears.

You can get in there only with a guide on the free tour of the president administration which should be reserved like 3 months in advance. The house itself is not very interesting, unlike the house with chimeras.

Цікава й зачаровуюча споруда ззовні із своєю родзинкою: обличчя жінки на фасаді, яке ніби плаче під час дощу. Всередині не менше цікаво та атмосферно. На даний момент будинок є резиденцією президента, де приймають іноземні делегації президент та його дружина.
