Monument Tourist Spot
Give a nod to the salt miner's toils at Permyak - the Salty Ears, an unusual memorial to these workers, whose ears became saturated with salt, turned red, and increased in size due to carrying bags of salt on their shoulders. This strange sculpture from 2006 features a figure of the photographer and a granite column crowned with an oval frame with large ears. Try the ears on, and pose for a photograph.
