The ship is one of two vessels that moor in the harbor of Kiev. They are the Dnieper Plaza and the ship in the picture named St. Andrew. All the other vessels were removed following the order of President.
The ship belongs to Aleksandr Ktitorchuk who is one of the most famous photographers of Ukraine. People from showbiz and world of fashion know the person well enough.
Nobody is indifferent about the photographer. People either hate him or adore him.
The ship is unique as there is no other similar vessel in the world. Aleksandr made it with his own hands. He is an airman and has always had a dream to have a ship of his own.
First he bought a written-off tug and hired craftsmen to rebuild it totally. Only engines and bottom of the old ship remained which will be substituted as well because old engines of the Soviet times occupy a lot of space. The small library is filled with books and furniture that can be used during reading. When the library was ready, the owner asked his friends to gift him half a meter of books for the birthday. That is how the library was completed.
