Look Best: Large on Black

This very unusual and moody old fortress, the Golden Gate, sits obscurely in the middle of old Kiev. It is unlike anything I have ever seen, and I still don't know what to think of it. It wasn't pretty and it wasn't well-formed... it was just... kinda... there. But picture-worthy? Sure!

    It looks fantastical, like something out of a sci-fi movie. Maybe?? Very unusual.

    Sorry, it's not the original golden gate but simply a 1982 reconstruction.
