This one is about some crazy train, who sacrificed a pair of his wheels and left them on rails in order to get freedom and travel freely without rails.

This one is the only official monument devoted to the water-pipe system. It is even taller than nearest multi-stored buildings.

There were many monuments to Lenin erected during the Soviet Era, but this one should beat all the records of weirdness: here Lenin stands on some sort of self moving railroad car constructed specially for one human to stand on top of it… I wonder if this monument has traveled across the Russian railroad system to distant villages to introduce advanced Soviet Art ideas to respected countrymen.

And this one is also from the Soviet Era times, it depicts a “Worker Man” with something that nowadays youth calls a cell phone. It looks very timely in this age of phones or iphones madness.

  14. Hello,

    I want to inform you about this monumets. Nasreddin is a fictional legendary satirical Sufi figure who is believed by some to have existed during the Middle Ages (around 13th century), in Akşehir, and later in Konya, under the Seljuq rule. Nasreddin was a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes.
