Statue of a photographer peeping with his camera around the corner. It seems that he's taking photos of Bratislava celebrities leaving the bar nearby.

Bratislava - Paparazzi

Strange statues in Bratislava

After the political change they tried to revive the city not only by cleaning and repainting the rather cheerless buildings, but it by creating some strange statues, which are very popular among the tourists and give the town an additional surprising flair. The most famous of these are:
  1. Čumil the Peeper by Viktor Hulík, 1997.
  2. Paparazzi by Radko Mačuha.
  3. Schöner Náci by Juraj Meliš, 1997.
  4. Napoleon's Soldier by Juraj Meliš, 1997.
Čumil, Schöner Náci and the Soldier were unveiled on 26 June 1997 at the occasion of the opening of the pedestrian zone of the old town center.
