  • Guys, once again found themselves in the same area in July 2017. The monument stood on the spot well worth it.

  • 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.
