Monument to Yuriy Gagarin in the Foros central square was erected in 1961 at the request of local residents of the village.  

It was in the beginning of September 1961, after his famous flight into space on the spacecraft Vostok that Yuriy Gagarin rested and recovered at the Tessely's dacha in Foros, along with his wife Valentina and the youngest daughter Galya.  Crimea has become an ideal choice and a place for adaptation after the flight.  Yuriy was surrounded by the attention and care of the maintenance staff of the dacha.  

The street on which the monument is located is named Cosmonauts, also not for nothing, since all the first cosmonauts who came to rest in Crimea were walking along this street.
