Maybe the best planes museum you will ever be to. Enjoy. You are going to see the most popular USSR passenger planes: IL-86, IL-62, TU-134, the famous first soviet jet TU-104 and many others. All comes in original "Aeroflot" paintings. Some of them are open to enter (for free), check the website. Though have to note, museum is visibly lacking funds for maintenance. Looks like it was left in eighties to this day. Bit it is an advantage for you in some way, you can feel it "untouched".

Open air aviation museum with good collection of aircrafts and helicopters. In some of them it is possible to get inside. Price of ticket for grown-ups 100UAH, children 65UAH. Highly recommended for a visit.

Heaven for any Aviation Gig. Bring 1,5-2hours time. Lots of exhibits and view on operati g runway next door. Some planes you can visit from the inside. Advice for owner: Install wifi for guests,so they can make free posts and Advertisement fot you,so visitor numbers are going up also from foreigners...i had a bit of hard time going back to City Center with Uber (4Ubers cancelled/too outside and too much traffic & plus bad cellphone reception) But nevertheless gorgeous museum Definetly worth visiting and supporting it! Thank you. Service staff friendly (very little English though)

Exciting exposition, vast variety of aircrafts, engines models, missiles and bombs, mostly open-air, so good for Covid times. Descriptions are kind of poor but Wikipedia helps.

Coolest place ever! Awesome! Literally could spend hours here. Great place for photoshoots too. Never seen so many planes in one place and you can climb inside of many of them

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
