This statue is mesmerising to look at. It shows Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, taking off like a rocket. His stance makes him look like a superhero. The statue is made of titanium, which is a very hard metal that was used in...More

When leaving the WC2018 Fan Fest, we took a free bus that went down the Sparrow Hills and dropped us close to a big avenue. While walking in this avenue to the subway station, we got surprised by this very tall monument. Given that the...More

A very magnificent monument in an area a little bit far from the center and a little bit busy from traffic. A huge monument where you need to turn your head up to see it. A real big monument for a real big man of...More

Yuri Gagarin was the first man to go to space. The first man ever to leave the earth! His statue is bewildering, tall and proud he stands, high in the air, in the blue sky. Definitely a sight you must behold!

This statue is an amazing sight not least because it sits high above a very busy thoroughfare. Yuri sits on top of a very tall pillar that is a little bit out of town but still worth seeing.

It's just a statue, a very big one. But its style will remind guys in their 40s (like me) how we used to dream about going to space. If you read and see films about Yuri before going, you will understand the myth better. Worth...More
