Slightly to the side of the central section of the embankment is Russia's first monument to the Beatles. The monument was an initiative of the local Beatles club. The sculptural composition depicts silhouettes of the four musicians against a brick wall backdrop. Musicians from John Lennon's first group, The QuarryMen, came to Ekaterinburg for the opening of the monument.
