Permyak - the Salty Ears, Perm
(4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Walking in the town center you can bumb into this sculpture. It is funny but it is not worth to spend more than 3 minutes! 
  • An interesting monument, in praise of the legend of Permjake solo ears. The sculptor chosen solution with humor, for which he thanks. One of the business card of the city.

  • There is a city on the Kama River reservoir. Bus tours around the city. Drove the entire city and the Centre and new buildings. Heard several variations of the origin of the phrase "Permyak-salty ears". The city installed funny monument pickled ears. Near the monument did a bunch of photos. It's like a visiting card of the city. Will be in Perm, necessarily visit here.
