  • Such a high art is not clear to me, but I'm glad that there are people who can explain it to me. The truth is there are already a few and vandals "keys" is not.

  • We had to really laugh at this monument in the city park. Where else in the world can you try to Enter the Ctrl-Ctrl to jump? The monument also fits in the modern dynamic look that Jekaterinburg.

  • An interesting monument, especially for 2005 onwards, when it was opened. But in my opinion you choose to fail.
