Create an itinerary including Cumil
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.

  • Such a cheeky chappie in the middle of town. Touch his hat 🎩 for luck 🍀 apparently. Left one of my painted stones here to find. Bit of fun. Supposed to represent a typical communist worker

  • Unique and special statues are around Bratislava city centre with a story behind them and great poses to take some funny and cute pictures
  • I loved this attraction, it's part of the change, it means freedom to Slovak people, and if you touch its head you get luck
