Monument · Tourist Spot
Cumil is a bizarre bronze sculpture of a peeping Tom emerging from a manhole. Probably the city's most photographed tourist attraction, it has raised many heated debates over the question of the depicted man's business. It is unclear whether he's resting after cleaning the sewer or peeking up women's skirts. The statue is marked with a road sign since reckless drivers have chopped its head off at least twice. Follow local custom and rub the top of his hat for good luck. Keep in mind that this is just one of many curious characters placed throughout the city.

  • This is not as exciting to see as some reviewers claim. It was so underwhelming that neither of us took a photo. I think it is just a touristy gimmick.  more »
  • Lovely little attraction. History behind Cumil / man at work might be a bit dissapointing but nevertheless it's still a great photo subject and he looks very cheerful :)  more »
