I saw this art work on 17th November 2018. The literal translation of the word Čumil is the watcher.“ There are two possible explanations for its name. The first rumour says that he is a typical communist-era worker who is not bothered about the work...More

This statue, even though on the road pavement, catches your attention while walking in the Bratislava city centre almost instantly. There would be people queuing up near the statue of Cumil, the sewer man. Click a picture with Cumil and continue moving towards the city...More

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"
