Walking through another street we then encountered Cumil, the statue of a man at work which as the legend goes, is either uninterested about his ongoing work or is trying to look under women's skirts.

I have never seen anything like it anywhere else, if you don't know to look for it, you would miss it. Good for a laugh and puts a smile on your face 😀

You have to visit this piece if you visit Bratislava, rub his head for good luck, you can’t miss him and it’s a nice walk through the old streets enroute

It is what it is - an amusing piece of street art or a trip hazard depending upon your point of view - but you wouldn't want to miss it though!

I think you're the idiot - you've clicked "ask a question" but tried to insult someone for their opinion instead. Also, might be worth a quick proof read as your grammar is not quite right. hmmmm. think before you "speak"
