Kyiv is more than just a city; it is a veritable treasure trove for literature lovers. While strolling through its streets, one can easily recognize the places described in the works of the early 20th century.
The house numbers have changed, the facades have been painted in different colors, and the streets have been renamed, but if you look closely, you can imagine the Kyiv bohemians gathering in the «Art Cellar» on Horodetsky Street, the heated discussions in Podmohylny's office, and the futurists, symbolists, and spiralists arguing in the basement of the Continental Hotel. «Martians» strolled along the evening Khreshchatyk, and the mysterious Theosophical Nine searched for inspiration in Georgievsky Lane.

Vira Aheeva's new book invites the reader on a fascinating journey through the literary Kyiv of the early 20th century. The author shows the city through the eyes of avant-garde artists, rebellious emancipated women, and bohemian poets. This is a Kyiv where, despite all the hardships, people who preserved its history and future lived and worked.
