September 13, 2016 01:11


Past and present of Znamensk is associated with the activity of Kapustin Yar testing ground, in the past the tests of ballistic missiles, air defense missiles and even nuclear weapons were carried out there.

In 1962, Kapustin Yar turned into a spaceport. And today missiles and small space objects are launched there. However, Znamensk is a closed city, where you can only enter if you have a special pass. It can be issued in coordination with the Russian FSB.

By the way, all the attractions of the city somehow are connected with its work, so if you are dreaming of space, you should come here.

Winter is cold enough here, the average temperature in January is -10 ° C.

Summer is hot and dry in July, the average temperature is + 25 ° C, but sometimes the thermometer rises up to + 40 ° C.

In summer, during the day the temperature can vary dramatically. There are showers with thunderstorms and sometimes hail. In July, there are dry winds.
