In the City of Statues

Bratislava is a city with many sides to it. And at least as many statues.

A fairy tale about Bratislava? »Not necessary, the city is a fairy tale in itself,« Hans Christian Andersen once said. And he should know. After all, he’s responsible for classics like »The Ugly Duckling« or »The Princess and the Pea«. In fact: Strolling through the enchanted streets of the Slovak capital, you could be forgiven for feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland. On the one hand, because of the architectural mix of old and new. On the other hand, on account of the many mostly bronze sculptures. The statues strike poses all over town and make popular photo-ops. Like Cˇ umil, better known as Man at Work, who has been peeping out of an open manhole at an intersection in the old town since 1997.
