As a local, I walked past Cumil many times in my life so I may not actually see the interesting thing about this statue. And believe me, I have tried to like it. Yet I find it pointless. There are so many more beautiful statues in Bratislava. But I must admit that people, especially tourists, like it and they do take photos with it.
So I guess it is not your usual statue that you see anywhere but honestly, what is so interesting about it?
