12 april - celebrating 53 anniversary of the first human flight in open cosmos. This historical picture shows Yuri Gagarin at his visit in Sofia, Bulgaria on 22 may 1961. Next to him is the socialist leader of the country at that time - Todor Zhivkov. The photo is not taken by me of course - at that time I was –7 years. It was made by a cousin of my mother and given by her to me as a precious family value and memory. I just want to remind you the greatest soviet hero and this brave day for all the humanity. Enjoy! And always remember to fly high in your daring dreams~~~
