This amazingly unique monument was built to honor the Russian Space program. It was erected in 1964 and is 110 meters tall. It's fully made out of titanium and pretty much symbolizes a rocket on its way to space. Inside the base of the monument you will find the National Space Museum which was just recently re-opened to the public after three years of renovation. It's very close to the VDNK Park, where you can find more interesting sights and spaceships. Simply rent a bike for a dollar (just next to the entrance) and explore the entertaining park and its amazing fountain.
