В 1912 году новое здание на углу Пушкинской и Бибиковского бульвара (сегодня бульвар Шевченко) стало объектом паломничества для всех молодых архитекторов. Это сооружение определенно содержало в себе элемент новизны. Архитекторы из Одессы Минкус и Траупянский создали высокий, изящный и достойный фасад. В 1908 году венский архитектор Адольф Лоос придумал провокационную фразу – «украшение и преступление», имея в виду, что украшениям не место в предметах каждодневного обихода, включая здания. Фасад гостиницы «Palast-Hôtel», являл собой оригинальный компромисс между стилями ар-нуво, арт-деко и чем-то совсем новым. За этим стилем будущее, соглашались молодые архитекторы.

We would like to thank Olexandr Lytvyn, the General Director of the Premier Palace Hotel, for making this book possible.
It must be noted with greatest respect that the management of the hotel decided to accept historical facts rather than old legends and traditionally distributed myths. Sometimes swans are born after ugly ducklings went to die. Therefore we have to look at the story of the swan, and of the duck.
We are in particular indebted to all former and current members of the staff, who contributed so generously to this book. Personal thanks go to - in loose order: Oleksandra Plakhota, Alexey Metelskiy, Rodderich Leffler, Natalia Ostapenko, Anna Semenkova, and all the others who have contributed to this book. Thanks for personal assistance at the hotel goes to the team of the concierge desk, in particular to Irina Lonyuk and Sergey Tikhiy and to the butler Yuliya Perfilova.
History research: the author wishes to thank Kyiv historian Mikhail Kalnitsky, Thomas Cane, Carola Augustin, Viktor Kirkevich and Pavlo Dyban for their contributions.

Publisher's recommendations


Dear wonderful Readers; 

Days like this lead to endless hours at home, time for books, time to read and to prepare our next journeys. 

I recommend the new edition of HOTEL METROPOLE HANOI.

The first copies of THE HALF MOON TREASURY are being released – exclusively to our readers (and before its official launching date). 

We have released a reprint of our successful book THE WESTIN EXCLESIOR ROME, the most famous hotel on Via Veneto. 

The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar) receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails. 

There is a hotel in Seefeld, Tyrol, Austria, which stands for all the fables and legends this little olympic village has to tell. It is called ASTORIA, and run by legendary hotelier Elisabeth Gürtler. Our new book SEEFELDER MINIATUREN - ASTORIA - A STORY - A LEGEND is available now – in this store. It is in German, only (for the time being).

Upon request, we dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).

Have a save journey!
