Man At Work- Cumil - Review

The ‘Man at Work- Cumil’ is a bronze statue of a man working at a roadside drainage and peeking out to check-out people who pass buy. Some say it was made to depict the man staring at some gorgeous legs!

The statue itself is loved for its sheer creativity and life-like appearance. A rather fun bronze statue, take a picture with Cumil to keep the memory alive for years to come.

Man At Work- Cumil, Bratislava Reviews

  • Loved it! Was alot of tourists taking g photos so had to wait a while! My daughter thought he was funny! Market nearby selling souvenirs with him on, much cheaper then shops nearby!

  • The most amazing tourist attraction in my opinion on the city street and you can get it from the gift shops on a magnet if you like it like I did.

  • Really quirky little bronze head and shoulders of a man climbing out of a drain inspection hole, must be the most 'selfied' object anywhere - fun watching the antics of the tour groups.

  • Discovering Man at work. Walking in Bratislava old town streets is a fun way to go back in time. You'll find some funny histories behind each statue located around and in the main square. The most famous and really intriguing is called “Cumil – The watcher”. The sign next to it states “Man at Work”. There are a few explanations online on the “Welcome to Bratislava” website. The first rumour states that he's a typical communist era worker who is not bethered about the work he’s supposed to be doing. Another rumour is that he’s looking under the women’s skirts, hahahah … We all know these types of stories. But based on his smiling face, we'll go with the second rumor! You'll have time to choose which rumor you prefer as you wait in line to take a picture with him! Serge: 4 Eli: 4 Recommended: Yes, it’s the funniest and famous statues in Bratislava.

  • The literal translation of the word Čumil is „the watcher.“ There are two possible explanations for its name. The first rumour says that he is a typical communist era worker who is not bothered about the work he’s supposed to be doing. According to the second rumour, he’s looking under the women’s skirts. Choose the one you like more :) This most photographed statue of our city attracts tourists at the junction of Laurinská and Panská Streets. Since 1997, when it was first embedded in the ground, it has become one of the symbols of our Old Town. There is a story around this man sticking out of a manhole. The story says that a wish will come true for you if you touch the head of the man – if you keep it secret forever.
