An entire town appears to be something out of a Disneyland movie or a children's picture book – and people can't get enough.
The beautiful Ukrainian suburb of Kiev, called Comfort Town, is full of multi-coloured houses and buildings which resemble Lego bricks.
The stunning town was created to brighten up the landscape after the dull and grey Soviet buildings in the 1950s and 1960s.
Now, the buildings are painted in bright greens, yellows, and oranges – including the exterior walls and even the roofs.
Those who come across the bold colours claim they look like Lego buildings or hotels from the popular board game Monopoly.
Rows of the houses take over a large space of the suburb with contrasting bright colours appearing next to each other.
Designers Dmytro Vasyliev, Aleksandr Popov, and Olga Alfiorova behind the project took 11 years to complete the transformation.
According to Architecture Digest they were forced to stick to a strict budget.
The idea behind the design was to attract people to move to the area, covering 115 acres, into something more beautiful.

Mr Vasyliev told the LA Times: “The only instrument we had to work with was colour.
“We used the simplest materials, the simplest techniques. We really just had the colour and the lines of the skyline.”
Although the town resembles something Disneyland would master up, it is almost 1.5 times as big.
Inside are cafes, offices, and shops, as well as a huge outdoor sports facility, and is home to 8,500 flats.
The colourful suburb has seen potential homeowners flock to the area.
In February last year, it was reported more than 200 houses were being bought per month – the highest in the country.
Now more than 20,000 people live in the Lego town.
Zhanna Rzhanova, a spokeswoman for the developers of Comfort Town, said: “Either you love it or you hate it. There’s nothing in between.”
It's not the only rainbow-coloured town on the planet, with another area in Western Turkey boasting beautiful shades of houses.
Kuşadası, off the Aegean coast, a small resort town, is popular with tourists and is near to Ephesus which is a busy cruise port for travellers.
Banwol in South Korea decided to paint everything in purple to celebrate its local flower, campanula.
There is also a village in Malaga where hundreds of thousands of tourists flock each year as every building is painted a different shade of blue.
