  • As a computer scientist I must find this 'monument' great! The idea behind it is good, it is but to find something difficult if you don't know the city.

  • The only place where you can press your foot Enter, and SPACEBAR unable to raise hands. Cool huh? Go and try it yourself)

  • An unusual monument. In the winter time. of course, looks not so impressive. and that's during the summer visit to the city, was pleasantly surprised that the embankment, if you call the zone along the main river in the concrete river, has such an unusual and bright object. Most tourists, vacationers-sit on the keys. Oh and as the benchmark. "meet the keyboard"-sounds. Yekaterinburg is generally a city of contrasts and it is good. Next to the keyboard stands a metal fence-dubbed with maternymi inscriptions from the actuator, peregorazhivajushhij "Quay". Very symbolic.
