Borovsk: How the Yak-40 passenger aircraft became a museum

A city that favours bold projects. Teaches you to dream. This is Borovsk, where Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the founding father of rocket science, conducted his experiments in the 19th century. He proved that interplanetary travel is possible. Bringing original ideas to life is the character of another local resident who turned a Yak-40 passenger plane into a museum.

For many centuries Borovsk has been making rag dolls reflecting the idea of Russian cosmism - the interconnection of man and the universe. The programme presenter Anatoly Kharitonov will try to make such a doll. And he will also go to visit the buzzing labourers and find out who saves the masterpieces of wooden architecture.

We would like to thank the city administration and the "View from above" YouTube channel for their help in organising the filming.
