- The Memorial Museum of Cosmonauts is located just across from the hotel Cosmos. There is a tree-lined park called the Alley of Cosmonauts. Near this park is a tremendous monument called the Space Obelisk. The Obelisk is nearly 100 meters (325 feet) tall, and depicts a rocket at the top of a parabolic stream of exhaust. It was fun seeing chirldren playing on this monument and trying to slide upwards as far as they dared go. At the base of this Obelisk are sculptures of people who contributed to manned space flight, and inscriptions marking the many acclompishments in Soviet space exploration.
