#1 of 158 in Things to do in Perm
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.

  • Let's start with the fact that in year 2009 "Russian world" magazine recognized this monument the strangest monuments of Russia, I thought so too when the first time I saw it. Many know the expression "Permyak salty ears", this monument is just the embodiment of this expression and invites to try big, salty perm ears, though in the photo.

  • You can make funny photos. Than the whole nation. Sent to her husband. He did not understand the meaning (didn't know what monument is dedicated) and very surprised such a composition.
