This week we are celebrating the International Day of Human Space Flight. This day is a special day for our country - a day of pride, as on April 12, 1961, a citizen of the Soviet Union, Yuri Gagarin, for the first time in the world made an orbital flyby of the Earth, opening the era of manned space flights.

Russian News Agency TASS and its educational project Newm together with the Museum of Cosmonautics of Moscow have launched a new project - a series of videos dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's flight into space. The first of the three stories introduces viewers to the process of rocketing the Vostok launch vehicle and placing the spacecraft in orbit.

Saint-Petersburg Sea Port

Saint Petersburg – The Capital of Sea Cruises


Saint Petersburg was created as a port city. The city makes a brilliant ensemble with the delta of the river Neva that flows into the Baltic Sea. Just as it was centuries ago, nowadays St. Petersburg port plays an important role on the Baltic Sea.

Saint Petersburg has always drawn much attention. However, in the past the city lacks the infrastructure necessary to receive cruise ships. That is why the construction of a specialized passenger port turned into one of the most important projects and in 2010 the new passenger port was constructed on the Basil Island.
