Nasa astronaut Tom Stafford was among the mourners.
Alexei Leonov, the first person to walk in space, has been laid to rest at a memorial cemetery outside the Russian capital of Moscow.
The legendary cosmonaut, who died Friday at 85, was buried in a lavish ceremony, attended by hundreds of well-wishers and other celebrated cosmonauts.
Ten years later, he was the commander of the Soviet section at the Apollo-Soyuz flight, the first joint Soviet-US space mission.
