Cumil, Bratislava

(3.9/5 based on 1,700+ 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.
