Russian puzzle on the house in Ukraine 1

People of Lvov city in Ukraine decided to add another attraction for the visitors of their city. According to the artistic project it was decided to place a giant 100 feet (30 meters) tall at the wall of the one of the multi-stored residential houses.

There is one interesting detail about the design of the puzzle. It looks like an empty puzzle during the day-light, but at night when special lights are on the words in the puzzle become visible with a lightly-glowing fluorescent color.

The questions for this crossword puzzle are located in different point of interests of the city, like monuments, theaters, fountains etc. So people while walking around the city can try to answer the questions and writing down the answers. When the night comes to the city they can meet at this house and check their degree of intelligence.

    Lvov is town with 100 % Polish spirit. Now Lvov belongs to Ukraine, but it will be always Polish city !

    Check out this song, from 1930.

    Włóczęgi – “Only in Lvov”

      Ok you can have Lvov and Western Ukraine if we have back our Eastern and Southern Ukraine. Re-unite them into the Russian Empire.

      As for Western Ukraine they are all ultranationalists and currently control Ukraine’s government and ALL of Ukraine’s territory. You can have Lvov and the entire region, it will be YOUR problem, not ours :D

      • President Putin says:

        As for Russia I and my puppet Medvedev are all terrorists and currently control Russia’s money and ALL of Russian people souls and belongings. You can have a bit gas, but you have to give your soul and betray your country. Its YOUR problem that you didnt make good propaganda and brainwashing, not mine.

        hahaha XOX/\bl what will they think of next…. benderovzy

    • Joerg Haider says:

      Actually the name of the city is Lemberg and it has 100% Austrian spirit. It belongs to Austro-Hungarian Empire, Polen only lived there with other Austro-Hungarian subjects.
      Remeber the name of the city is Lemberg.

      • Leszek says:

        You gotta be kidding me… Lviv was founded in 1256. Now go and check out the maps from that year. It is Ukrainian city even though different nations that tried to occupy it lived here for… some short periods of time let’s say.

      • Irene says:

        You can start a fight with Jacub on whose city Lviv is (Note: LVIV – if you call it Lemberg, it’s your problem). Meanwhile the citizens of my native UKRAINIAN city joke about some foreigners, who believe they posses our city.

    • Stepan says:

      Yeah, everything is Polish, the flag is Polish, people speak Polish, and it is all eurozone:)

    • Irene says:

      Honey, believe me if there is a bit of polish spirit in Lvov, than it’s 5% the most! Lvov was never truly polish city, Poland just took it by force, so would you please stop posting such comments.

    terry wogan rocks! woooooooo

    also in the news: artists suck and i try to stab them when i can, hopefully in the face (when i surprise them)!

    word puzzles are good though :)

  4. Starshii says:

    How cool idea! I like this kind of art.

  5. magma3637 says:

    wow. it a creative way to attract tourist. maybe i should suggest this to my local gov too (“,)y

  6. madachode says:

    There we go again , gypsey letters all over a building. I would be ashamed to be living in that pit.

    • Stephen says:

      Man, people suck. It’s a crossword on the side of a building, to get the clues you had to visit sites around the city (like a tourist tour) and then you got to check your answers at the end of the day when the lights come on.

      Just think “oh, that’s quite a good idea” and move on.

      If it’s not in a language you can understand, well maybe you’re on the wrong website or maybe you could go out and learn it.

      It’s not a pit, it’s a towerblock. There’s literally nothing in the world short of a cloud in the sky that’s less like a pit.

    Wow, no Miss India Russian bashing comment yet. Must be lazy in a dirt bed in India.

  8. Alex says:

    this more looks like a crossword to me – not puzzle

    so, this is where the money goes from the stolen gas…

Man har även lagt till en detalj för besökande turister, nämligen ett korsord. På en vägg till ett hus finns ett 30 meter högt korsord målat och sedan går man runt i staden för att hitta de olika frågorna och försöka komma fram till svaren. Och svaren kommer sedan fram när kvällsmörkret sänker sig, då man med specialfärg skrivit svren på korsordet på väggen (och det syns alltså bara i mörkret). Ett litet problem finns dock om du är sugen på att åka dit och försöla lösa korsordet under dagen, det är på ukrainska… http://englishrussia.com/?p=2197 [...]
