Fun little statue in the Old Town

The Cumil (Man at work) statue is one of many dotted around Bratislava Old Town. Worth finding for a quick picture

I cannot find something amazing in this spot of the town. It is ok for a photo and it is in the old town

I am unsure of the cultural significance as we almost literally stumbled across this, but it appears to be a sewer worker peering out of a grate. Overall, a good picture opportunity if you happen to be near it, but not a destination.

This was fun to walk by and snap a picture with. Bratislava is a very tiny capital city, so this was just a fun little addition since there isn't a ton to see in the city (compared to the other big cities we were in during our Europe travels).

Very cute statue. Cumil is the worker of undergrounds. Some said he come out to look under the girls skirts :) Rubbing his hat brings Good Luck.

Not really of any historical value, and certainly not unique in the world, this statue was added (with many others) to liven up the city. Quite successfully, as most tourists want to get a photo with this "man at work". I have to admit it is a funny statue and I like it too, but as I mentioned, it has... More

There is a lot of modern street architecture of a similar nature to this around Old Town, which adds a little humour to the aged grandeur of this working city

This statue is in life size but as the man is down the hole you need to go low for a nice shot. There are few more statues (in different poses) nearby!

Stumbled across this on my first night, not knowing, what it was. Thought it was cool. Got back to the hotel, to look at the top attractions to see in Bratislava on Trip Advisor, and was shocked to see this was number 5. It's cool, but no way is it a top 5 attraction.
