Worth a quick photo

Cute statue on a streetcorner in Old Town. Not worth a separate trip, though a great photo-op if you're passing by.

This is actually no more than a different kind of statue. It is located on the walkway and it seems like a soldier getting out of a sewage hole. Walk to there just to see it, it's fun. Or even better take a tour that will certainly pass there. Also the only place in town where an official "Men at... More

We were lucky to find it for the first time without a crowd surrounding it for photos! One of the most famous spots in Bratislava!

It took some time to find Cumil. A funny sightseeing ... brings lots of philosophical issues to people :) I heard various versions from the people around me, while waiting to have some space and make a photos of him. He, like myself, likes to watch the crowd and analyze people :)

My kids can't stop talking about Cumil! It was fun to look for him and fun to get pictures along with all the other children in town. Very interesting bronze work.

Everyone stops at this attraction. How strange that in the UK this would not be allowed due to our HEALTH AND SAFETY ISSUES!

Found this statue as we were wondering around the old town and had a few photos taken with him. Its only as I have come to write a review that I have read the story about him and touching his head for good luck. Unfortunately I didn't know about the good luck thing but did have a photo with my... More

You might miss him because there is usually a crowd milling around. He is on a crossroad for pedestrians so always lots of people about. A witty and engaging piece of outdoor art.
