Looking for that one-of-a-kind vacation hot-spot that simply screams out raw sex appeal?
Well then consider the Russian town of Tomilino – specificallyÂ its chief attraction: a factory knownÂ either as Zvezda or simplyÂ “Factory #918.” For over six decades, this small (and no doubt charming) facility is where is Russia’s space program has been engineering its spacesuit technology – all of which can now be yours for the viewing. Moreover, it claims to also have a “kiosk,” a “bus stop” AND a “fully-functional catapult…”
But that’s not all . . .
Perhaps most compellingly, because Zvezda continues to perform dangerous top-secret experiments (including during tourist visiting hours), there’s every chance you’ll get even more of thrill than advertised in the laboratory/museum’s brilliantly designed tourism brochureÂ (alsoÂ helpfully suggestingÂ other highly intriguing Russian destinations).
SoundsÂ perfect forÂ anniversaries, no? These guys really know how to market…
