Get an early start on the day with 7:30am pickup at your centrally-located hotel in Kiev, then travel to Pervomaisk in a car, minivan, or minibus (depending on group size). Break up the 4-hour trip with a breakfast stop in Uman (own expense).

Upon arrival in Pervomaisk, begin a 2-hour, guided tour of the Strategic Missile Forces Museum, where youll learn the story of the ICBM base, which once housed 22 military units and nine groups of launching facilities. A highlight of the tour for many visitors is riding an elevator 108 feet (33 meters) underground into a Unified Launch Control Center that housed nuclear missile operations until the site was decommissioned in the 1990s.
