Dedicated to one of the city's most beloved characters, Schone Naci Statue pays tribute to the real man who once roamed its streets. The statue stands in the historical city center, near the town square, cheerfully waving his hat at all who walk by. Note that the image is constructed of silver material, rather than bronze. Designed after Lamar Ignac, the statue honors him through its kindly expression. The man was known for bringing joy to the town, strolling through the streets in a top hat and full suit and greeting women with the politeness of days gone by.

  • Another one statue that you can find in the street of old town in Bratislava. It is nice to take some photos as a souvenir because the these statues are not usual.

  • A funny silver statue for a love matter of Ignace Lamar, a local resident situated in the heart of Bratislava city.
  • This sculpture stands in tribute to Schöner Náci, who was inspired to make people happy by walking around Bratislava Old Town wearing tailcoat and a top hat. It’s said that he would greet women with the words, “I kiss your hand” in German, Hungarian and Slovak. This sculpture depicts Náci as a larger than life sculpture wearing the aforementioned attire and tipping his top hat to passersby. It’s a popular sculpture and there’s often a queue for people wanting selfies. What a wonderful tribute to unique individual.
