    Hardest working statue in Bratislava Old town
    Boy was this little statue busy and popular. We visited fairly early in the day and there was a lot of people around. We listened to a walking tour operator who said to his tour group that when he arrives at this time in the morning with his tour groups, there is normally no-one around and he was actually surprised how busy it was. We had to wait to get a photo and there are your general clowns being annoying and getting in peoples way deliberately just to be a pain. These were quickly hurried away by some annoyed people who were trying to get photos. I actually thought is was going to turn ugly and the annoying people left quite quickly when they realized the people they upset were really angry with them. As soon as the trouble makers left, peace returned and everyone cordially lined up and took their turns getting photos which is always nice. Its a shame some people need to ruin it for other people. The statue itself I thought was a bit of cheeky fun and I really liked it. He's a bit of a character. A must see for look and a photo when in Bratislava old town.

    Beautiful city - worth a visit
    Bratislava is like many older Eastern European cities, a mix of old culture and modern living. We have enjoyed the old town with castles and churches the most, but also appreciate many of the restaurants, bars and malls. Reason for not giving a 5/5 rating, is the touristic impact especially in the old town area . This is a shame. Everything else is great and we could easily swing by another time.

    Funny guy, Cumil!
    Funny little guy in old town, you don’t need to go out of your way to see him. You will almost certainly stumble upon him soon enough on your travels though the streets. Cool guy, lots of people queuing to take pics with him, I like what he represents :)

    Funny and original!
    A great and funny idea that is a sure tourist attraction in the historical centre of Bratislava. Please keep that in mind if you want a picture without other people or with your own company and choose a time when there are not too many tourists around. Otherwise you might wait and wait for your turn of a decent picture...

    More cities need whimsical art like this
    We are early risers, and there was no one around for photos. Fun 'Easter egg' art like this should be more common in big cities. Prague has this down pat with their yellow penguins, Černý babies, embryo, peeing statues, and so on. I wish Toronto would do more of this.

    Most photographed statue
    The statue of a man climbing out of the sewer, relaxing for a bit with a benign smile on his face is quite popular with tourists. It is located on the corner of a street near the main square, outside a jewelry shop. Amongst the many statues dotted around the old town of Bratislava, this one is a quirky little thing.

He's just a fella!

Travelling in non peak months is great because you get away from all the people lining up to take photos.

Not difficult to miss if you're walking around the streets.

It is a cute and fun statue, also to take pictures with. There are also fridge magnets of it in souvenir shops.
It is one of the things that come to my mind when I think of Bratislava. :)

When out touring in Bratislava take the time to stop for a photograph at this fun little statue. Can get busy so get there early if you don't want to be rushed

Did not realize that this small statue had a name, but did learn the story behind it on our tour. Many of the streets had interesting markers and manhole covers, but this beats them all.

One of the most interesting and funniest statue, Čumil, the iconic sewer worker, keeps staring at the streets of the old town, attracting tourists to it. A must see in Bratislava!
