In the Central District


Planetarium (September 2010)

Not only does Volgograd's planetarium offer you a trip to the stars it also allows you to take a trip back in time to the Soviet Union. The planetarium was a gift to the city from the East Germany in 1954 and was then the height of technology. The Soviet-style building is topped with a statue of a woman holding a globe, the last work of famous sculptor Vera Mukhina.

Inside are mosaics of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, Yuri Gagarin and even Stalin.  The show itself is also definitely worth watching.
