THE WHOLE ERA OF SPACE EXPLORATION IN 2 DAYS

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 onboard the "Vostok" spacecraft on April 12th, 1961. Since then, over 1 200 spacecrafts were launched into the universe from this base and it still has a busy schedule. It is managed by the Russian space agency (that leases a territory of almost 7000 sq. kilometers from Kazakhstan) until 2050. Almost every month there is a spaceship launch which you can be a part of!

Taking tour to Baikonur with our local guide and space expert and visiting the facilities and objects that were used for space exploration in the past, makes these days spent in the Kazakh desert a once-in-a-lifetime experience that only a few people a year can cherish!

If you are in a hurry and want to explore Space Age and the whole rocket science for the best price ever; this 2-day adventure in Baikonur is the experience you'll never forget. Besides exploring the city itself, you'll watch the start of a spacecraft (4 times a year manned!) from 1 km distance, see the cosmodrome museum or visit house where the first astronaut Yuri Gagarin lived before the launch. But if you're hungry for "more" experiences, you can also book our 5-day Baikonur trip [LINK NA 5 DAY], which includes richer program.
