Valentina Tereshkova, the first woman to fly in space, was born there. The museum Cosmos, devoted to Tereshkova and her flight, is located in the village of Nikulskoye, which is about 5 km to the south from Bolshoye Maslennikovo. Currently, there is only one resident who lives in the village year-round but many houses are retained as summer cottages.
