  • Avenue of the conquerors of the Cosmos we find next to VDNiH Park and the Metro station of the same name. Along the Avenue you will find busts of virtually all astronauts (probably because in this respect, my knowledge is limited) who at the time of the SOVIET UNION were pioneers in the field of space exploration. My visit coincided with the anniversary of the 55 just first flight into space Yuri Gagarin Aleksiejewicza spaceship Vostok 1 and that this avenue of the meritorious has a bust of decorated and anniversary flowers. In the immediate vicinity there is a museum dedicated to aerospace topped by a huge Obelisk-shaped foliage can be up coming fire the rocket nozzles. The location of the same Avenue and the Museum in the Park of the VDNiH that causes the exhibition to see we have to virtually book all day and the attractiveness of the place provide crowd moskwiczan spend there time and for tourists from abroad will allow you to go back in time to another era-for them probably rather not comprehensible to the end.

  • Totally recommend this wonderful museum covering everything from Sputnik and Gagarin to The Mir Space Station and the International Space Station. If you are in Moscow, don't miss it. 
  • Grandly decorated alley. Many historical events associated with the conquest of space, reflected in the memorable characters of the attractions.
