Cumil, Bratislava

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. Plan a trip to Bratislava easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • It is not unusual to see people queuing up to take a photo next to him while you play him the hat. Very original

  • Nothing to write home about ... ... Yes is in the center of town and you will see why many tourists stop for some depiction.

  • This image was installed in 1997. About Cumil there are many stories but none of this, however, turns out to be wrong. It's just a random image on the corner of the street. Cumil is over the years several times damaged by inattentive car drivers but the image is not only a danger to car drivers, but also for pedestrians in the dark every now and then about him stumble. To these drivers, persons and especially to protect itself Cumil, installed the city just above his head a warning sign. Take your time for a photo because there is always a big row.
