  • Let's talk honestly. Human space flight, the heroic, courageous and correct. But we have tourist site, so the pathos aside, will discuss specific places and specific sites. Looking at the Yuri Gagarin monument that stands in the square in the center of the Lenin Avenue, involuntarily recollect the famous aphorism Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol, who, from the equally famous "auditor": it is, of course, Alexander the great man, but why the chairs breaking? Now let me explain the meaning. The monument was raised in 1980 year. Times Terry moth. When you don't give that was set, only to be reminded about the heroism of the Soviet citizen. Why Leninsky prospect? Yes, because after the flight, Gagarin was traveling to report to the Kremlin about the success of space it is for him. Upon arrival at Vnukovo. Here's an idea and tied to the place. As conceived by the architects must mount it was stand in plain view. To make it visible even with the ring road. But did not take into account that Moscow will develop not only in breadth, but also upwards. And now the monument completely lost his impozantnost'. Its not seen practically at all. Even leaving the Metro you will search for:-where is it? Well, except that those who watched hurtling along the Avenue. And even then, if not very quickly. Overshadow his posts, traffic lights, power lines and other facilities of a big city. And in the winter, generally around the mud, slush and cold wind. Want to quickly escape from this place somewhere. Better there, featuring ... In short, the monument was not interesting. As an architectural construction, of course, rather than as a historical event. Hence the advice to tourists:-Specially to look at it and go here because of it. But those who still want to look one eye, you can get there by Metro to the station "Leninsky Prospekt" or by train from the Central ring road to the station "Ploschad gagarina".

  • Close to the Metro station Leninsky Prospekt is a monument to the famous Cosmonaut who first made the trip to space. This person is known in the whole world and his monument stands to see it and enjoy it.

  • This statue is an amazing sight not least because it sits high above a very busy thoroughfare. Yuri sits on top of a very tall pillar that is a little bit out of town but still worth seeing.  more »
