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.
Historical photographs: Famous Hotels Main Archives, Pavlo Dyban (oldkyiv.org.ua),

Publisher's recommendations


 

Dear wonderful Readers; 

It is noteworthy that, contrary to all predictions, interest in good books is not dwindling. It spurs me and my team on to produce better, even more beautiful books. The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar), for example, receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails. METROPOLE HANOI and ORIENTAL BANGKOK were relaunched in brand new edtions. The Oriental book is the first to present the (very) complete list of all authors who had ever visited. It was quite a challenge to compile it.

We dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).

Have a save journey!
