  • They offer different "Star shows" that are very well done. You need to check their schedule and join a group if you are solo. Nice place to kill an hour. The building itself is also very beutiful.  more »
  • Not in every town there is a planetarium. We were lucky. After the war, it was built by the Germans in the city. It was in the year 1954. And timed was a gift from the GDR to the 70-th anniversary of Stalin there interesting to attend lectures and look at the starry sky and the planet. Informative! Recommend to all visitors!!

  • A beautiful building surrounded by pine trees. Nearby Observatory. Planetarium holds interesting astronomy programs for children and adults, before connecting a small tour with demonstration satellites layouts, experiences with the Foucault pendulum, presented a model of the Earth in a cut, moon, sky map. Cons: spend sessions only if there not less than 10 people group.

  • Interesting place. Hit like that in the Observatory. Was shocked of course. Managed to see the rings of Saturn. Maaaaaalen'koe of course all but very unusual) and double stars. Also interesting were telling. But most importantly, it's got to get in good weather, and of course depends on the time of year that you can see. Go necessarily worth

  • Excursion to the Planetarium completely uninteresting and short. Despite the cloudy, then cloudy weather it held, but a telescope view respectively offered only note: "antenna atop mamaeva mound". But told them what wonderful gardeners and I saw lots of pictures of astronauts. In a group of 13 people, with each 180 rubles for heinous 40 minutes. The administrator was not in place, and therefore the money was not returned. Not the best impression of the city create such situations. Really, really better in a Museum-Panorama go for almost the same amount.

  • Really beautiful from the outside the building, a favourite photographers as for architectural photography, and photo shoots. In addition, around the building as a whole, beautiful furnishings and the street itself, on which it is located. Inside, unfortunately, all steeped in the USSR. Even hanging shiny (literally) a mosaic portrait of Stalin. The dome is in a deplorable state. However, a variety of programs, the existence of the magic of the Observatory and Planetarium is more than enough to get out in a good mood. I advise you to go to the website of the Planetarium and view the timetable and programmes.
