Overview
Spend an action-packed day inside the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre, using the same simulators used by cosmonauts to prepare for space travel. The Centre is located in Zvezdny gorodok (Star City) - a name which may refer to the facility itself and to the grounds on which it is located. It is the first cosmonaut training facility and home of the largest of three cosmonaut units in Russia. You will be able to see an accurate copy of the “MIR” Space Station and learn about what the cosmonauts’ way of life is like, up in orbit. You should be impressed by the Hydro-Space Laboratory – a gigantic pool (23 m. wide but 12 m deep) with models of an orbital station, its modules and the spaceship "Soyuz" inside! You will see: • Models of Soyuz Soviet spacecraft • World's largest centrifuge with an 18-meter radius • Hydro laboratory, with the model of the International Space Station in water, which allows to simulate the weightlessness and many more • Guaranteed skip-the-line entrance

    The Yuri A. Gagarin State Scientific Research-and-Testing Cosmonaut Training Center is a Russian training facility responsible for training cosmonauts for their space missions.

(Read more about Yury Gagarin Cosmonauts training center) The secret Star City was built to train Soviet cosmonauts, including Yuri Gagarin, the 1st man in space. Many other famous Russian cosmonauts trained here with Gagarin: German Titov, Valentina Tereshkova, the first female cosmonaut, and Alexei Leonov, the first cosmonaut to exit the spaceship into space. The best facilities were built for them: the world’s largest centrifuge and hydro laboratory. Many cosmonauts from other countries (USA, Japan, Germany and many others) also have trained here together with Soviet Russian cosmonauts.
