Man At Work

Čumil

The hard working man poking out of a manhole is the most photographed sculpture in the city. He’s been watching the junction of Panská, Laurinská, and Rybárská streets since 1997. It is said that touching the head of Čumil brings luck.

In The Heart

Old Town

A mixture of architectural styles can be seen in the main squares of the city. From the townhall that was first built in Gothic style up to Classicist Primate’s palace in Primacialne square. Many buskers perform in the streets creating nice atmosphere.

Unforgotten Gate

Laurinská brána

The Laurinc gate was built in the 13th century and served as one of the four tower gates that were part of the city’s fortification. Nowadays, there is a portcullis hanging over Laurinská street that symbolises the former medieval gate.

UFO Tower

Most SNP

Also called UFO, the bridge of the Slovak National Uprising rises up to 95 metres above the Danube river and offers great views of the city and state borders on the south. The restaurant on top is quite pricey compared to others but its setting is worth a short stop.
