A Puzzle on the House

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.

  1. 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 😀

      • 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

      • 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.

    • 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.

  2. 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 🙂

    • 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.
