  • 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
  • Liked it? Because there is no skul'ptorsko-design ideas about space better in Moscow. It's been 37 years look at steel bird-man and tears in his eyes. That could, overcame darkness, ignorance and. .. And revealed to the world that we are for the nation.

  • Even this monument not only is part of Russian history but also of all humankind. A hero, a volunteer who is represented in the philosophy of human time present and powerful but especially a monument that is a fitting tribute to him and the company made. Stunned to see the ball at the base as it is small and wondering how dare you put into a structure so addressing first the unknown. Visited June 2013
