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.

The route of this excursion consists of several parts: first – the initial one – lies with the road to the exposition halls, on both sides of  the road a collection of missile engines is situated, the P-12 missile mock (missiles of this type were deployed in Cuba in the 60’s during the Caribbean crisis); second – through the halls of one of the constructions, where the real and documentary materials on the history of creation and formation and liquidation of the division and Missile forces of strategic assignment are stored. After that , a movie on missile launching is offered for the visitors; next – getting acquainted with the techniques, mechanisms and equipment, which with the help of the management of the missile launching was carried out (they are deployed alfresco, in special premises, under the ground). One should have a camera to take most interesting moments in pictures.

The variety of the exhibits strikes not only with its size (from the smallest, for instance, the sleeve’s fragments of the Great Patriotic War times, to the 35-meter long with a diameter of 3 meters intercontinental ballistic missile PC-20B (SS-18 “Satan” due to the NATO classification, that not so long ago expanded the collection of the unique exponents of the missile technique), but also with its exclusivity. Currently, the museum has more than 2000 exponents and the quantity is constantly growing.

I want to thank you for the good service, especially to Vadim, who waited for me at the airport for about 45 minutes longer because my plane was delayed. Also he drove me to a Mac Donald restaurant when i arrived in Nikolaev because i was so hungry! He also asked me if I could call him after I was in my apartment just to make sure I was oke. Where do you find this kind of service and customer care these days! So for everybody who still hesitates using services of GotoNikolaev, and maybe think the company is a fraud, i say: DONT HESITATE!! This is a honest and legit company, and you get so much for your money, really! The apartments look just like on the photos and its very clean, and mostly cheaper then hotels. Thanks Dimitry and your staff for the good service provided, and i surely will make use of your services again in 2014!

Since using GoToNikolaev.com, I immediately realized that I found a reliable source for connections to friends and families and for delivery of items at reasonable prices. There are multiple resources for use to travel and stay there that are helpful and when I had a minor problem with a delivery, the management resolved the issue quickly and fairly. It is like finding a good friend to arrange needs both while visiting Nikolaev and during my absences to keep in touch with family. In 2012 I visited the city of Nikolaev and found many things to admire and enjoy during my brief visit. I plan to explore more during my subsequent visits. I know that this website will provide assistance for any need during my next visit and for anything connected with this great city. I look forward to many years of association with GoToNikolaev.com.
