Another opportunity is for you to pick up some extraordinary good new books on Soviet/Russian space history. 'Dom Knigi' is usually the best place to go, and space books used to be in the 'transportation' section, not the 'science' section. Any other suggestions?

I suggest paying a visit to editor's office of Novosti Kosmonavtiki magazine. Their offered choice of space books makes me drool. Another good place is Podarini shop.

I hate to hijack the thread, but is there a Russian equivalent to Amazon.com where one could simply order Russian books by mail?

Nicolas,
I've created a topic at NK so that people would share their knowledge of museums related to spaceflight which are located in Russia, Ukraine and other parts of the world.
http://www.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=10178

If you can read Russian, you may extract information about museums in Moscow right from there. If you can't, I can translate some of it and post here.

Thank you very much Siberian Tiger !!
Yes, I can read Russian, so these pages are very helpful for me !

Hello guys ! Greetings from Moscow !
Yesterday I've seen the Buran at Gorki Park. I would like to see Feoktistov's stone at cemetery, but they didn't let me enter :-(
I've found a very interesting book by Eduard Buimovski !
Good bye !
