This funny little man represents our only smile in Bratislava. We salute the artist who have a great sense of humour.

The best of the 4 quirky statues in Bratislava old town. Make a little tour to the other funny statues : Napoleon, Schone Naci and paparazzi. Top street art and a must see.

A statue in a manhole cover? I have no idea what the fascination is, but it took up no more than a few minutes of our break.
