Tour of the Vostochny Cosmodrome:

The opening of the Vostochny Cosmodrome provides an independent access to space for Russia from its own territory. From here, spacecrafts will be launched into any types of orbits. Due to this fact even more manned space programs will become available giving more opportunities for deep space exploration.

Vostochny Cosmodrome - general data:

8 000 kilometers away from Moscow;

180 kilometers from the city of Blagoveshchensk;

 The area of the Vostochny cosmodrome consists of 700 sq. kilometers

The launch complex of the Vostochny Cosmodrome is the heart of the spaceport. One of the key objects of the spaceport, designed, first of all, to serve the Rocket Carrier “Soyuz-2”.

The mobile service tower has a unique design, speaking of the Soviet-Russian technologies: it has 7 tiers, a height of 52 meters and a weight of 1,600 tons. There is no other such equipment at the Baikonur or Plesetsk cosmodromes. This service tower allows to carry out all pre-launch procedures in the most difficult climatic conditions. The tower also provides increased safety measures and extra elements of comfort for the members of staff during the launch preparations, including an emergency evacuation system. You would be allowed to stand at the launch pad – the point from where a rocket has just took-off just a few hours ago. You will have a pleasure of observing a unique design and making a picture against the background of the mobile service tower.

The technical complex at the Vostochny spaceport is a huge site where two assembly and test buildings are located, where carrier rockets of the “Soyuz-2” family and rockets of other classes are being assembled. You can visit both buildings and see everything with your own eyes.

A highly qualified employee, a true master of his craft, will give you a tour around the territory of the technical complex. You will learn about how and where the assembly and refueling of rockets and other pre-launch preparations take place.

As any other spaceport, the Vostochny Cosmodrome has its own command post - which is the brain of the whole facility with 67 cables providing the operation of all systems.

There is also the Vostochny command and measurement point that gives trajectory measurements of the motion of the launch vehicle with the spacecraft.

Vostochny command center - manages and coordinates all the procedures connected with the preparations and launches of spaceships, transport cargo ships, manned flights, promising space programs and, of course, the everyday life of the Vostochny Cosmodrome.

Tsiolkovsky - Museum of the History of Cosmonautics.

The Cosmonautics Museum at the Vostochny Cosmodrome is one of the key places in the city of Tsiolkovsky that you will visit, giving an idea of the entire chronology of events - from the Svobodny Cosmodrome to the Vostochny Cosmodrome. One of the most valuable exhibits of the museum is the genuine capsule of the Soyuz-TMA-07M descent vehicle. In this particular spacecraft Russian cosmonaut Roman Romanenko and two NASA astronauts returned to earth.

You will visit the city of Blagoveshchensk during the tour to the Vostochny cosmodrome, which happens to be a very cozy and small city, as well as, the center of the Amur Region of Russian Federation. It is the fifth largest city in the Far East, located on the banks of the Amur River and the Zeya River. This is the only city located on the state border between the Republic of China and Russia. The Amur River happens to be the border between the two states. Blagoveshchensk residents can travel to China in just 30 minutes by crossing the border and finding themeselves in the city of Heihe.

Blagoveshchensk locals often go shopping in China or just take a walk along the streets of China. Tourists traveling with us to the Vostochny Cosmodrome have the right to stay for half a day in China, where they will be able to explore the cozy streets of Heihe, taste the famous Beijing duck in one of the restaurants.

Vostochny Cosmodrome is full of the latest technology achievements, opening new opportunities in the exploration of space and bringing the dream of space flights to other planets even closer!
