Worth watching out for.

Why is it there. No idea but it is a quirky statue and it seems to have a fame all of its own when you see what is available to buy magnet wise etc. Lots of tours go past so... read more

Cute statue to vist whilst in Bratislava. Very popular amongst tourists. One of the popular myths is that he's smiling because he's looking under girls' skirts. It's also meant to be lucky to touch his head.

OK so I'm not really sure why this is on TripAdvisor and why so many people love it!? It's a statue of a guy poking out of a manhole! Nothing more, nothing less! You can rub his head for good luck if you believe this! I wouldn't go out of your way to find this...OK if you stumble across it.

Nice, one can get to see this statue while walking around in old town. Nice history. May stop by for few minutes and take a pic or two and proceed.

I guess it's ok, but really it's just a small modern statue and not worth going out of your way to see, A few minutes here is more than enough.

Might as well see Cumil while walking around town. Not really a big deal. It is a part of bronze statues of workers scattered around old town Bratislava but this is the most famous as it is easy to spot and close to the town square.

Very interesting landmark. This statue is different, as most statues, that I've seen are in full height.

Found this massively overrated and 'created' for tourists. If you can't find it walking around, I wouldn't bother.
