It is the first cosmonaut training facility and home of the largest of three cosmonaut units in Russia. You will be able to see an accurate copy of the “MIR” Space Station and learn about what the cosmonauts’ way of life is like, up in orbit. You should be impressed by the Hydro-Space Laboratory – a gigantic pool (23 m. wide but 12 m deep) with models of an orbital station, its modules and the spaceship "Soyuz" inside!

The best facilities were built for them: the world’s largest centrifuge and hydro laboratory.
Many cosmonauts from other countries (USA, Japan, Germany and many others) also have trained here together with Soviet Russian cosmonauts.
