At the border of the Kirovograd and Nikolaev regions, not far from the city of Pervomaysk, 220 kilometers from Nikolaev, a unique Museum of Strategic Rocket Troops is situated, that not so long ago used to be a secret missile base. It was affiliated to the 46th Nizhnedneprovskaya Krasnozmennaya division of the October Revolution Order. The silo-based missiles of RS-22A (SS-24 “Scalpel”) type were deployed at the base. Also one can get acquainted with samples of missile engines, auxiliary motor-vehicles, and a mock nuclear warhead. A type P-12 missile is presented to the visitors (it played the key role in the Caribbean crisis of the 1961) and a type PC-20 missile (SS-18 ‘Satan”), the most powerful at the moment. Along the underground corridor, with a length of 155 meters, one can get to the underground command post, designed for a fully autonomous functioning for the period of 45 days.

One should have a camera to take most interesting moments in pictures.

I have been in Ukraine for a couple of weeks now and from the time I first contacted Mishka he has given immediate and very happy service. You should be proud to have him as your public face and his manner in dealing with problems whether taxi or apartment is beyond reproach. Too many times we just take service for granted but sometimes it is delivered in a special way and I will tell my friends as well as use his services again on my next trip to Ukraine. I hope his efforts are finasncially rewarded and he is a credit to your company.

I have been a customer of "gotonikolaev.com" for about 2 months now and I have had excellent customer service. It is very uneasy to use a service, paying them money to purchase items for your girlfriend when the agency is in another country and you know nothing about them. However every time I placed an order it was handled in a timely manner and I was kept notified from the time I placed the order to the the item was delieverd. I sent roses twice and both times my girlfriend said the flowers were very beautiful and fresh. You took pictures like I requested and sent them to me right away. You went out of your way to contact my girlfriend and make the delivery at her work where it was more conveniant for her. I have traveled to Moscow, St Petersburg, Novosibirsk in Russia and several times to Kiev Ukraine. I have used numerous agencies to arrange travel, hotels, apartments, and other things that an American needs arranged when traveling to Russia and Ukraine and I have had some good and bad experiences. It is a pleasure to have done business with an honest and sincere company. I know how to get around and what to expect when traveling in Kiev but I have never been to Nikolaev and I know it is much smaller and not as tourist friendly as Kiev but I hope to have a good experience with the help of your company.
