Yuri Gagarin and Orenburg
Толстых Ангелина Ивановна, ученица 8 «А» класса
I live in Orenburg in Gagarin Prospect, that’s why I’d like to tell about this well-known man. There are a lot of interesting facts, things and places in my native town, which are connected with the name of the first cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. "Orenburg gave me wings. Here I met the young girl, who became my wife", wrote Gagarin. These words are very valuable and important for the citizens of Orenburg. Yuri Gagarin studied at the Orenburg (then Chkalovsk) military aviation school of pilots from 1955 to 1957.
There is the Monument to Yuri Alekseevich in Gagarin Park. The statue was erected to the first cosmonaut’s memory. It was on the 12th of April in 1986. A cosmonaut Yuri Viktorovich Romanenko, the Twice Hero of the Soviet Union and our zemlyak, was among honourable guests in the opening of the Monument. The figure of the cosmonaut Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin in all height stands on a granite pedestal. The first cosmonaut is in the overall with a bare-headed. The son of the Earth stretched out his hands to the blue sky. Two vertical stellas symbolize a daring and a courage of the man's dream. Gagarin Park and especially the Monument became the place of traditional sport contests among young people. The Monument to Yuri Alekseevich Gagarin reminds us and guests of Orenburg of the first step into the sky.
In Orenburg there is the Memorial museum-apartment of Yuri and Valentina Gagarin. The Museum contains a lot of photos from the family archive, original things of the first cosmonaut, the furniture of the past time, space food and others.
Welcome to Orenburg! Enjoy visiting amazing places!
