    A great view on the night sky opens from the Astronomical Observatory of the Aosta Valley, Italy.

    At all times, people have been fascinated by space, the stars in the night sky, and trying to understand what is hidden behind those bright celestial bodies.

    Stargazing and trying to catch a glimpse of falling stars is a favourite pastime for many people. For some, it is enough to compel them to drive a few kilometres from the city, while others attempt to seek out the darkest spots on the planet. Stargazing is confidently becoming a separate tourist theme, with some companies purchasing routes with astronomers instead of guides, hotels offering a telescope in each room, and some people including visits to the observatory in the programme.

    Sputnik has compiled for you the best places for observing stars, comets and the Milky Way.
