Cosmonautics Day is an anniversary celebrated in Russian and some other countries, that was part of USSR back in the day on 12 April In 2011, April 12 was declared as the International day of human space flight in dedication of the first manned space flight made on April 12, 1961 by the 27-year-old Russian Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. He circled the Earth in 1 hour and 48 minutes aboard the Vostok 1 spacecraft. The commemorative day was established in the Soviet Union one year later, on April 9, 1962. In modern Russia, it is celebrated in accordance with Article 1.1 of the Law "On the Days of Military Glory and the Commemorative Dates in Russia". Gagarin's flight was a triumph for the Soviet Space program, and opened a new era in the history of space exploration. Gagarin became a national hero of the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc and a famous figure around the world. Major newspapers around the globe published his biography and details of his flight. Moscow and other cities in the USSR held mass demonstrations, the scale of which was second only to WWII Victory Parades. Gagarin was escorted in a long motorcade of high-ranking officials through the streets of Moscow to the Kremlin where, in lavish ceremony, he was awarded the Highest Soviet honor, the title of hero of the Soviet Union, by the Soviet Leader Nikita Khruschev.
Nowadays the commemoration ceremony on Cosmonautics Day starts in the city of Korolyov, near Gagarin's statue. Participants then proceed under police escort to Red Square for a visit to Gagarin's grave in the Kremlin Wall Necropolis and continue to cosmonauts alley near the Monument to the conquerors of space. Finally the festivities are concluded with a visit to the Novodevichy Cemetery
