The Verkhovna Rada building

The Verkhovna Rada building (Ukrainian: Будинок Верховної Ради) is located in the center of Kiev, the Pecherskyi District. The building is located at the Constitution Square. It is the place where the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) meets for all regular and ceremonial sessions. The building was erected between 1936–38 to a design by Volodymyr Zabolotny (Vladimir Zabolotnyi) in the neo-classical Ukrainian architectural style. Zabolotny was awarded the State prize for that project in 1940 and appointed the chief architect of the city.
