There is no other place in the world where you can truly ‘feel’ the space exploration by mankind other than Baikonur in Kazakhstan. It is the world’s first and largest space launch facility built by the Soviets in the 1950’s.

Sputnik, the world’s first satellite, was launched from this cosmodrome in 1957, followed by the first human space flight with Yuri Gagarin on board of the ‘Vostok’ spacecraft on April 12th, 1961. Since then, over 1,200 spacecrafts were launched into the universe from this base which still has a busy schedule! It is managed by the Russian space agency (that leases a territory of almost 7000 sq. kilometres from Kazakhstan) until 2050.

And now, CHERNOBYLwel.come is going to guide you to this fantastic and fabulous place.
