It was officially opened on February 26, 1961 – the year of Yuriy Gagarin's first flight. Established by the thirst for knowledge of the people of Stara Zagora and the joint efforts of professional and amateur astronomers, the Observatory enables several generations to look at the stars and learn interesting facts about the immense universe.
