The construction of the hotel dates back to 1975. By 1978 the floors had been driven out, and in 1979, according to all calculations, the building had to be put into operation. But funding from the central budget was stopped, and the city was not able to cope with such an object by itself. By 1995 the construction had still being going on, though very slow, even windows and doors were partially installed. Experts estimated that half a year of hard work remained. But then the funding stopped completely. The hotel was abandoned until 2005, when it was bought by a private company, committing itself to building there a dwelling house within 10 years. However, nothing has changed since. So now the hotel remains only a great lure for tourists and roofers.
Since the building is surrounded by a huge fence and is privately owned, it is protected as a minimum by dogs (we have seen at least two on a leash). It is ideal to go here in winter. There is a convenient entrance over the ice on the Dnipro River, bypassing the fence on the right side. Stairs have survived only from the first floor, so to get to the ground floor you have to climb the wall with the help of boards, protrusions, own hands or hands of friends.
From the top of the hotel you can see:
- Skyscrapers- LCD "Tower" which is a symbol of Dnipro;
- Separate buildings of the central part of the city;
- Amur, Central and Merefo-Kherson bridges;
- River port, located between the hotel Parus and the Amur Bridge;
- Plant "Oleina"
