Museum of Miniature of Nikolay Siadristy Dec 11, 2012
Museum of Miniature of author Nikolay Siadristy is located at the territory of Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra. Open daily, except Tuesday, from 9am till 6pm.

Nikolay Siadristy's name is known far outside Ukraine, and his works can be seen not only in Museum of Miniature in Kiev, but in Moscow Polytechnical Museum and in Museum of Microminiature in Andorra.

The smallest in the world operating electromotor of 1/20 mm3 size was constructed by hand of Syadristy; this device is almost 20 times less than a poppy seed.

Among other microminiatures, exposed in Museum of Miniature in Kievo-Pecherskiy reserve, practically each is unique. For example, Rose in a hair. Within all along a hair, a cavity was drilled and polished to transparency. Then, a rose stem, 0,05 mm width, was fixed inside. Also the artist managed to place a whole caravan of gold camels to needle’s eye.
