Cumil, the happy sewage worker, is one of the several bronze statues in Bratislava. He is marked with a special road sign - I don't know if the sign is a part of this installation or whether it is meant to prevent people from stumbling over Cumil. There are two common explanations for what Cumil is actually doing: one says he's a typical communist era worker who doesn't give a toss about the work he's supposed to be doing; the other one says he's peeping up women's! skirts :-)

Address: Crossroads of Panska and Rybarska streets
Directions: South of the Main Sq.
