Walk across Anatoly Vyatkin's QWERTY Monument, which features an IBM PC keyboard scaled to 30 times its normal size. Completed in 2005, the monument includes 86 concrete keys, each weighing about 80 kg (176.4 lb). The keys in the grass also serve as improvised benches. An urban legend tells that wishes "typed" here come true--as long as you press "Enter" at the end.

Unique monuments, as well as different elements of street art have made diversity and adds brightness to the city, but does not change its shape and not destroying the General view of the city. The city lives, new items and it cannot fail to delight

  • Unusual-but no more. Keys already badly frayed, apparently, lots of jumping, trying to type words. Around the debris, put grass-you can see that the keyboard did not care. In Yekaterinburg there are interesting.

  • A monument of a keyboard, something different than a monument to a person. Not worth it to go for travel, but funny when you there anyway.
