The bronze figure of a man peeking out of a canal is undoubtedly the most photographed statue in the city.
Čumil was born in 1997 under the hands of academic painter Viktor Hulík . Since then, it has been one of the symbols of the city. There is a legend circulating among the visitors of the city that if you touch its cap - budajka, it will bring you happiness. That's why he's already visibly frayed. Čumil survived two accidents and even an attempted theft and is still a popular stop on a walk through the Old Town.
