Amusing piece of artwork

Everyone, it would seem, wants to have their picture taken with this amusing little bronze statue. Young kids simply love him and he brings out the child in the middle aged too!!

We were told by a tour guide this is the most popular statue in Bratislava. It's right in the midst of the Old Town so you probably won't miss it. It was apparently constructed as street art some time in the 90's and never meant to be a permanent fixture but tourists and locals alike loved him so much he... More

This is small statue as soon as you enter the old market square. If you touch his nose then you will surely come back here and if head then your wish will be fullfield. So many people are taking a photo can't miss it.

Pleasant surprise when wandering through the old town. The character appears to be emerging from a manhole.

It's a quirky statue, but nothing worth hunting down. Strange that this is considered a highlight of the city.

Walking in the old downtown we enjoyed seeing the many interesting statues, especially the bronze man coming out of the manhole in the sidewalk. Each statue had an interesting story of their creation.

A cool sculpture many will stop and take pictures of it, on it, around it, hugging it, kissing it, sitting on it... Kind of an original amongst similar things.
