City of stories. Episode 12. Kaluga

"The impossible today will become possible tomorrow" - it was in Kaluga that the founder of cosmonautics, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, wrote his major works. It's also home to the world's first cosmonautics museum.

Why was Kaluga called Testoedinsk? Where did Nikolai Gogol write the second volume of Dead Souls? What symbol does Khludnevo toy contain? Find out in the new episode of the City of Stories project.

For help in organising the filming we would like to thank:

Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics
