“Big statue in the middle of Moscow traffic chaos”

Monument to Yuri Gagarin
Ranked #195 of 2,479 things to do in Moscow
Attraction details
Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you are in the area, you must see this very impressive statue. Just outside the metro station Leningradsky Prospect. But it is NOT worth a separate trip.

Near Leninsky Prospekt metro station, this magnificent tall statue can be found, dominating all around it. Very impressive. Made from titanium. Worth the trip just to get good photograph and see a statue dedicated to one of the most famous names in world history

Seeing the monument itself is nice, not thrilling though. The best thing is that not far awar from there in the Academy of Sciences. On top of that is the Sky Lounge, which is in reality a high-end restaurant. With excellent but expensive food, not to mention a view of all of Moscow, it is worth going to.

But there is really nothing around. And on itself the monument doesn't worth the time spent to get there.
