  • The keyboard of the individual concrete block, located on the banks of the river Iset gozone. On each block-key shows the corresponding characters. In General, it is curious, but not more. You may enjoy the children jump on them. Meaning I don't understand, however, why the love that she is on a slope, rather than on a horizontal surface.

  • This is just one of those fun photo stops along the river walk. It was during winter and snow was there but they brushed the keyboard off and you can take photos. Nice quick walk by.  more »
