Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the request of the Ministry of Environment to create a park-monument of landscape art of national importance on the territory of the Government residence “Mezhyhirya”.
The picturesque tract near the Dnieper “Mezhyhirya” since 1935 serves as a state residence. For years, places visited by various statesmen were inaccessible to Ukrainians. After the Revolution of Dignity, Mezhyhirya became one of the most popular tourist destinations.
According to preliminary data of experts, on the territory of the residence there is a very rich landscape diversity.
“The Ministry of Environment, at the initiative of the Prime Minister, is starting the official process of transforming the Mezhyhirya Government Residence into a state park-monument. I hope that in the near future the favorite place of Ukrainian and foreign tourists in Kyiv region will become a protected area, such as “Feofania” , “Mariinsky Park” or “Holosiivsky Forest”, – said Minister Ruslan Strelets.
In order for the Mezhyhirya Government Residence to officially acquire the status of a park-monument of state importance, the Ministry of Environment must complete all legal procedures and prepare a relevant draft Presidential Decree.
