Explore the mystery of Kazakhstan and watch the launch of a spacecraft with UTS Group!

UTS Group recommends explore one of the mysterious and beautiful lands- Kazakhstan!

Being the world’s 9th largest country and located in the center of Eurasia, this land is well-known for its various tourist attractions and picturesque nature, including Cosmodrome Baikonur- the first and the largest operational space launch complex in the world.

The name Cosmodrome was established and on the 12 April 1961 Yuryi Gagarin blasted off from here to become the first man to orbit the Earth on his spaceship "Vostok". The flight lasted for 108 min. By then, the space industry had attracted a great workforce, so the town of Baykonur, having grown into a city, was renamed Leninsk and the rocket site was referred to as Baykonur.

Make your dream come true and watch the launch of a spacecraft from Baikonur Cosmodrome !

UTS Group can carefully prepare an itinerary based on your stated interests.
