Our ship docked in Bratislava before breakfast time. After breakfast, the opportunity was available to disembark for a bus and walking tour of Slovakia’s capital. This was beyond the capacity of my legs.

Bratislava Peeper

The “Peeper” in Bratislava

Several comic sculptures in Bratislava, including this one of a man doffing his hat. This eccentric man is named Schoner Naci, who apparently lived in Bratislava until the 1960s.

This statue is called “Cumil” or “The Peeper”, which is very low to the ground.

Location: 20-B4
