Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such a cheeky chappie in the middle of town. Touch his hat 🎩 for luck 🍀 apparently. Left one of my painted stones here to find. Bit of fun. Supposed to represent a typical communist worker

One of the most photographed statues in Bratislava, not to be missed for a touristic selfie. The Slovak word Cumil actually means “watcher”. The status portraits a typical communist-era worker who works little and takes a break or maybe he is taking a look at people passing. Touch his head to have a wish granted as the legend says and as you will notice a lot of other tourists doing.

One of the most well known statues in Bratislava. As you can walk on the old town of Bratislava you will pass it. In this point all the tourists taking some photos.

You can’t miss this fun bronze statue in the center of town - in fact, one of many you will have your picture taken next to! Just look for the crowd of people waiting for a selfie to locate. Fun stop, great idea.

There are many quirky in the world but this little fellow takes the biscuit.

Our tour guide left us in no doubt what a grand little fellow he was, I was so taken aback I forgot to take a picture!

The most famous statue in the historic old town and definitely worth a photo.

It is marked by a “men at work” sign at head height.

You have to see this unique statue and perhaps rub his head or nose...Get a picture too! It is found in Old Town and is just part of what makes this a special city.
