Baikonur Cosmodrome is the world’s first and largest operational space launch facility. The spaceport is located in the desert steppe of Baikonur, about 200 kilometres (124 mi) east of the Aral Sea and north of the river Syr Darya. It is near the Tyuratam railway station and is about 90 metres (300 ft) above sea level.
Baikonur tour is a special trip. It was only 25 years ago when it was a closed military town, and today there is a great opportunity to learn about the history of the astronautics, see the samples of real missiles, spaceships and meet the people whose all life is about and around the space.
This small trip consists of two parts: visit to the city of Baikonur and the museum of history of astronautics and visit to the Baikonur space center itself. There you can see launching platform and launching and hangars that were the goal of the US secret services as well as the museum of astronautics with the real space shuttle Buran where you can try to take the hold of controls.
Baikonur tour will gift you lots of bright impressions and make the space a bit closer to you.
