Cumil, Bratislava

3.9
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.

  • A beautiful and virtuous character emerges from the sewers. I think it has become a hallmark of the city and all trying to be photographed with him. The Camille deserves a caress.

  • A very special exhibit that fits in the picturesque city's temperament. Very attentive, easy to find and the approaches.

  • We found this nice sculpture by chance on our way to the old town. It was a happy surprise. Looked like she was really sitting there and staring at the street! You can find it too!  more »
