In winter the keys are a little buried in snow but it is a quick fun stop especially as the Beatles and Dr Who murals are very close. Bring some bread for the ducks if you're also thus inclined.

Interesting place to take some photos. The design is original, but it can be seen in just a few minutes. The surroundings are beautiful as well.

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.

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...More

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...More

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.
