Caption: Gagarin and daughter at the beach. Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin (1934-1968) with his younger daughter Galina (born 1961) while on holiday at the beach in September 1964. Gagarin, who was a devoted father, had married seven years earlier in 1957, and also had another young daughter (born 1959). Three years before this photograph was taken, Gagarin had become the first human in space, orbiting the Earth in the Vostok 1 spacecraft on 12 April 1961. Following this historic spaceflight, Gagarin became a hero in the Soviet Union and famous worldwide. Photographed at Gurzuf, on the Black Sea coast, in the Crimea region of the Ukraine.
