Cool sculpture

In a very prominent location and a well cool installation that begs to be photographed. Reminded me of Christy Moore!

This is one of three "fun" statues in the city. Good for a photo op but not much else. The remaining two are quite close.

This is a very amusing statue of a man at work in a manhole on the corner of one of the main streets in the Old Town. Another statue about which it is said that if you touch his nose you will become pregnant.I didn't but I noticed that his nose is very shiny !!!

Missed it quite a few times when looking for it on my gps. Do not forget to look down once you reach the corner. The whole of the old town is filled with interesting statues that people love to take selfies with or pictures of. Quite charming.

You will be walking around the town not even seeing this guy till someone points him out then you will feel like a balloon. Men at Work! Nobody knows the origin but he is a nice wee talking point

One of several statues knocking around the city centre , but very easily missed . Certainly unusual positioning and part of the fun is watching people getting down for a picture then struggling to get up !!

Funny fella. Visit if you want to show your friends a photo "with" Bratislava. Makes me wonder, why am I still writing. Visit it. You won't regret it. It's typical Bratislava. This fella has been peeking from behind that sewer since ever.

One of those places which is mandatory to take a photo at, the guy is working there 24 hrs a day! It's very close (3min) to the Old Theatre, Main Square, Old Town and all the important things tourists visit. Surrounded by restaurants (and McDonalds also). It's a good place to start your day program at - maybe go to... More
