Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, Yaroslavl
(4.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Learn more about astronomy and the history of Russian space travel at Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium, dedicated to Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman in space. Built on the grounds of a former monastery, the planetarium is known for its unusual architecture, featuring a white concrete and glass exterior and an inner dome illuminated by thousands of LED lights in a range of colors, making the building look like a sphere floating in space at night. Climb the observatory tower, which resembles the bell tower of an old Russian cathedral, and attend one of the shows that explain the stars in the sky and the changes that occur each season. One show deals with astronomy in Russian folklore; check the schedule online prior to your visit. The museum models and exhibitions have partial English captions, but tend to be interactive and easily understood despite the limited English information. You can get a meal at the cafe inside the planetarium. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Valentina Tereshkova Planetarium by using our Yaroslavl travel itinerary planner.

  • I am almost 30 years old. And the first time I was in the Planetarium. After his visit, I wanted to buy a telescope, sky map and explore the live-what is there from above? In winter, after walking along the street is a good place to stay warm. And this is what initially led us to the Planetarium. In addition, perhaps enough to later visit a session that also allows you to plan your day pretty freely. In addition to the view itself visited the Museum of Valentina Tereshkova and cosmonautics. At the Planetarium has a site with schedule and learned showtimes. I want to now go to the Planetarium in the city too:)
