    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
  • 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

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.
