  • Perhaps if you go specifically to see this monument, think it is small thing, since there take subway and walk a bit to reach it. But if you plan a trip to the area (for example, go to Lomonosov, to the University), much should be stopped (and not only pass side). The invoice of the sculpture and the conception of it are magnificent. It is as if Gagarin was, in itself, a rocket man. Although the Soviet era had ended, the design still refers to that simplicity of lines, the use of solid elements and the invocation of the image of the USSR as a generator of super men.

  • Very cool monument. Good photo op.
  • Monument to Yuri Gagarin by sculptor P.I. Bondarenko was set in Moscow on 4 July 1980. The monument is made of titanium - a metal used in the construction of spaceships. Monument to Gagarin has the status of the detected object of cultural heritage
  • have not seen even a single normal monument to Gagarin. In all he does swallow, stands in an unnatural pose, as here. The best monument Moscow I believe monument to internationalist in victory Park. That's where the monument. And then there's the strange crap of questionable value. Put three points because it could be worse-remember the same victory Park, "creativity" on the theme of oppressed peoples of notorious authorship. Or those same hands monument to Peter, although Peter is actually the same level as estimated here Gagarin with vykruchennymi hands.

  • In terms of aesthetics looks ugly and scientific and fantastic. Just today learned that the statue is made of titanium, it turns out. The benchmark for new Powers of good.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
