Sergey Mironov had his own blog, led tours of Kyiv, wrote books and restored old doors.

"Sergiy loved Kyiv, studied its details, history, sat in libraries for days, searching and comparing historical data, crawled through alleys in search of evidence of history, engaged in urban archeology and assembled it into one big puzzle of the Kyiv mosaic. I have never met a more passionate person. He sincerely shared all this with everyone who was willing on his walks, which lasted for 4-5 hours, because no one wanted to part ways and let Serhiy go", - this is how his friend Alyona Dienga describes the Hero.
