The Multifunctional Complex Gulliver (Ukrainian: Багатофункціональний комплекс «Gulliver») is a 35-story mixed-use building in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine.

It is located at the very center of the city near Palats Sportu metro station (municipal address: 1, Sportyvna Sq). It is the second highest building and the highest office building in the country.[3]

The complex consists of a 35 stories high office building and a adjoining 10 to 16 stories high shopping mall with movie theaters, restaurants and other business and entertainment spots.

Originally the building was to be called "Continental", but in 2011 it was named of Gulliver after the eponymous hero of Jonathan Swifts novel Gulliver's Travels.
