I loved the fact that there is no reason for this statue - it was just added in as a joke! If you are wandering around the city, you probably will stumble across him. We didn't go looking for him and then suddenly he was at our feet. We were in the city in the middle of summer and any... More

It's a very small statue but this one along with many others in Bratislava make the town beautiful and well worth visiting.

Funny statue, great for taking photos. There's always a lot of tourists around it, becouse it's one of the most famous things at Slovakian capital.
