We met this awesome Ukrainian man in Chernobyl and also happened to be staying in the same place as us, so we hung out with him a bit and chatted. We arranged to meet up with him a couple of days later back in Kiev to check out a few abandoned places he knew of. He took us to a a huge old semi furnished mansion in the middle of the city. We bribed a security guard to let us in (at first he would'nt accept our offer, but then we offered a little more and he opened the door for us). The interior was beautiful with 18th century fittings and an amazing staircase covered in dust.
