Erected in 1964, this monument celebrates the early success of the USSR in the space race. The monument itself is of a rocket rising up on a plume of exhaust.
The base of the monument features a relief design that depicts all stages of Russia’s journey to space. It pays tribute to key heroes such as the rocket scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, as well as the contribution of the Russian people.
For any of you artsy types, this work is a great example of Socialist Realism.
