Mezhyhirya is a toponym of Ukrainian origin which means land between mounts or land between hills.
Yanukovych was living in the lap of luxury. Besides his huge mansion, the president had his own private zoo, golf course, helipad, and even a massive boat.
The former government residence located near the Ukrainian capital Kyiv in the area called Mezhyhirya is huge – it measures up to 150 hectares (370 acres).
The main building in Mezhyhirya is a mansion built by a Finnish company Honka.
The Honka-palace is surrounded by a park with exotic plants and artificial lakes. The Google Maps’ satellite view provides evidence that all the construction works have been completed within one year after the president had taken office.
Around the main building there are an underground shooting range, a bowling and an indoor tennis court as well as wellness facilities. Private Tour Guide to Mezhihirya
