  • This monument is dedicated to the flight of Yuri Gagarin, not as one might think looking at his picture on the gorelefe, and the first satellite in 1957 year. Just a long ran a contest, then long was under construction. Competition won by architects Barshch, Kolpin, engineer, sculptor, Shhipakin Faydish-Krandievskiy. Barshch was famous for the project and the nepostroennogo Palace of Soviets-eighth "Stalin skyscrapers. Before the engineer Shhipakinym was to calculate the elegant, but very complex. The task was very difficult and became Shhipakinu help a design Institute of steel construction. It then will help when building standing near Ostankino Tower. The monument originally planned to post on the Sparrow mountains close to MSU, but he clearly and strongly clashes with its surroundings and selected wasteland near the VDNH. The last decisive touch to the monument has made himself Sergei Korolev, who offered to put the monument with titanium platinami-arhideficitnymi and expensive at the time (now too). Titanium is non-corrosive and perfectly reflects the sky, creating a unique play of light. 250-ton steel gathered on the ground, and then raised the special cranes. Sculptor Faydish-Krandievskiy on the pedestal depicts Korolyova than caused genuine anger last, said that there are more worthy people. Strongly dissonant with modern samovljubljonnymi figures, doesn't it? Yes and to achieve them in inverse proportion to the koroljovskim. The monument, which has become a symbol of the country, engaged in the 7-th anniversary of the first Sputnik flight October 4, 1957 year.

  • Its a good place to visit in Moscow. A beautiful monument along with the museum of space.
  • Nice museum an extremely interesting. But 90℅ of the information is in russian. If you don't know russian or have a guide...you only look at items and pictures with no clue what so ever!
  • Just like everything else in Russia, it's a huge and beautiful monument. There is also a museum dedicated to astronauts and space engeneering.
  • Walk around and good museum here
  • Great historic space monument. Spectacular by night.
