He started his business in 1975 and is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the city. To promote astronomical knowledge in the Star Hall Planetarium offers more than 70 programs.

Since 1975, the Planetarium was taken 3 and 9 solar lunar eclipses. The "heart" of the Planetarium is located round star room with domed ceiling and a diameter of 12.5 meters and 150 seats. At its center is located on the main projector - Planetarium Space Flight (RFP), which creates artificial starry sky, a replica of the real thing.

In the lobby shows a permanent exhibition of original paintings. Here are organized and temporary thematic exhibitions. Movie theater has 220 seats. Often there are organized conferences and seminars.

Let me touch the magic of starry space and see why our everyday problems and concerns are minor compared to the huge infinity. Sessions in the sky theater are held from 9:30, 11:00, 15:00, 16:30 (5 leva), foreign language from 14h (10 lev). Standing is the session at 15:00 hours in all other hours sessions are held for groups of not less than 10 people. If the day is sunny you can watch the sun (3 leva) and nocturnal observations are made only on Wednesday (5 lev). Planetarium died on Sunday in winter and only on Sunday afternoons in summer. Feeling watching alien objects is indescribable if you are in the area do not miss it.

Working hours: 09:30 to 16:30
