My visit to Cosmonauts Alley in Moscow was entirely unexpected; I walked into a park and there it was. A very spacious, monumental place with statues of Soviet cosmonauts and space scientists (Tsiolkovsky, Korolyov and others). The area is surrounded by blooming chestnut trees, and you can see Ostankino TV tower in the distance.
