Cumil, Bratislava
(3.9/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the points of interest in Bratislava. It is almost a new symbol. Tourists approaching, photograph him where to take pictures with this little guy we discovered at a street corner. Touch him the helmet would bring happiness, touching her nose fertility. Pump don't hesitate to touch both.

  • Bratislava is a charming, small town which makes it very nice and cozy. We came from Vienna to Bratislava, in my view, of a bath. In the city centre several attractions such as this, a statue on the street of the city, with obligatory stop to the photographic record.

  • Tourists go crazy with this statue. Totally unlike anything you've ever seen. The character comes out of a drain in the floor.
