There are only two microminiature museums in the world - in Kiev and in the dwarf mountain principality of Andorra. These works expand the well-established understanding of the boundaries of human capabilities. One of the most well-known exhibits is the smallest operating electric motor in the world - 1/20 mm3, this device is almost 20 times smaller than the poppy seed.
The Kiev-Pechersk Lavra opens its doors to tourists wishing to visit the Museum of Miniatures. Guests can enjoy the view of the ancient monastery, as well as see the author’s exhibits. There are only two similar museums in the world - one of them is in the kingdom of Andorra, and the second one has been proud of Kiev for many years.
The main exhibits of the museum of miniatures:
Rose in the hair. Inside it, along its length, a cavity is drilled and polished to transparency. Then a rose branch 0.05 mm thick is inserted inside.
A bas-relief portrait of the world-famous ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, which master artist Nikolay Syadristy was able to place on a 3x4 mm piece of cherry seed.
The smallest book ever existed - an illustrated 12-page Kobzar with poems by a great poet. Pages of the book are sewn with cobwebs, and the binding is made of immortelle petals. The size of the Kobzar is 0.6 mm.
“Parallel World” - on the nose of a mosquito made of gold, on a scale of one to one (length 6.5 mm), a girl sits, hiding behind an umbrella.
The product "Swallows", made in half poppy seeds. Swallows and chicks are also made of gold. The composition “Poetry” is also golden and is placed in the ear of a regular needle. The arrow and the string is 400 times thinner than a human hair.
