Some of the keys are now out of line and grass grows around them. I'm not sure what the motivation for building a Latin keyboard in a country that uses the Cyrillic alphabet was but it is unique if perplexing

This is a very interesting and unique monument. I've never seen something like that in the other place I visited

This monument is something different, it is a keyboard. It is on a riverbank and the red line goes there also. There is a rumor, if you write your wish and jump on enter it will come true. I wait for that day. It should be better taken care off.

The monument is beautifully situated along the water stream in a park near the Beatles monument. After getting fed up on art and churches in St Pete and Moscow, this was a nice contrast to all the gold. Some nearby graffiti adds cool vibe to the location. I wish we could have monuments like this in Stockholm.

Just follow the red line through the city. They have a good taste in strange monuments. If you have seen enough churches this ones for you.

So worth the detour! Me and my friends had the best of times jumping around and pressing all sorts of concrete buttons! One main con was that neither one of us was able to find the connection interface. Couldn't find it on Bluetooth either.

Nothing but a monument in the grass as a tribute to a keyboard. It was hard to find it since we could find a precise address. But it is a few steps from the Beatles monument, which is also fun and tacky.

One of a kind memorial with a Qwerty board model. Interesting concept. Close to the Beatles memorial and hence can be done in one shot.

I love stuff like this, but was disappointed with the condition. We were there just after the area had been trimmed, but they could have done a better job. Granted it is not easy to line trim between the keys. The keys would benefit from a cleaning and repainting too. Too bad they can't maintain it better. It could be... More

There doesn't appear to be any reason for this monument being where it is, but it's interesting none the less. The keys are, sadly, a bit neglected by the weather and when I visited they were mostly under snow and ice, but if you're in Yekaterinburg it's worth a little side trip.
