This must be the most unique statue ever!! I for one have never seen anything like it. The road sign close by describes this as 'Man at Work' but he does not seem to be doing a lot, except people watching. He has had a couple of new heads follow traffic accidents! Another great photo opp if you can get... More

He is an amusing statue in town, the hardest part was getting a picture no one else was in as he was swarming with people. The locals were walking past giving him a pat on the head

A very nice statue, I was very interested to go and see it, it's definitely an attraction point, even if it's not something very very special. It's a nice statue, very well made :D A fun sculpture, a special treat for kids

Barely a foot tall, Cumil comes creeping out of a sewer tunnel to check out what's happening in town. The artist created a fun sculpture, and kids (and adults) love it. Tourists often lay on the ground for photo opportunities. Enjoy

Cleverly designed and positioned sculpture which is now an important part of the street furniture in the old town.

A strange but beguiling little man! At some times he was lonely but at other times he is mobbed by tourists - mostly sitting on his head!

If your are walking through the town, stop by Cumil, take a picture with him as well as hundreds of other people and then you are done :) Cumil is something like a "symbol" of Bratislava for tourists.

In fact I don't like this statue, but I understand why it's attracting tourists. Statue is located in very central part of down town and probaly this is the most photographed place in Bratislava.
