Cumil

An unusual statue in Bratislava's old town. Often surrounded by tourists, so it's difficult to see him through the crowd...

This Cumil`s statue peeps out from the underground sewage pit.There are other statue close by in this tourist old town.Nobody was able to explain as to who Cumil was & i only surmise that it was a satire after the fall of the communists on the this old regime leaders by the new govt!

This is a lovely, quirky piece of street art and definitely made me smile. Like everyone else, I had to take a photo! Chumil is a bronze statue of a man appearing from a manhole and the story says he looks up the skirts of the ladies passing by!

Chumil came about with artistic freedom after the communists left. The charmer is slightly out of the manhole cover and looks up the skirts of the beautiful ladies who walk by..Rumor has it that if you rub his hat - you will have good luck

Just stop by and make a snapshot :) the statue had to be renovated couple of times, hit by cars by an accident usually. A quick stopover in the most touristy area, but fun ...

We found this as we walked around Bratislava on Rybrska Brana (Fisherman's Gate) It is a really nice piece of street art that brings a smile to your face and is great photo opportunity.

Another statue in the middle of Bratislava and another great photo opportunity. You will easily identify the spot where the statue sits since its usually quite crowded and with lots of people taking pictures. Touristic but nice.

This is one of the fun experiences in central Bratislava. This statue peeks out of the ground and, as you can see from the bright areas, he attracts a lot of attention. There is usually a crowd around him and people are touching him, taking selfies with him or just sitting on his head. The kids especially seem to love... More
