Star City (Zvyozdny gorodok) is a common name of an area 15 miles north-east of Moscow, which has since the 1960s been home to the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center.
Officially, the area was known as "closed military townlet No. 1", a highly secret and guarded military installation.
Nowadays, some of the restrictions are lifted and one could even meet NASA specialists there.
