  • Slovakia net Red sculpture address: Bratislava The capital of Slovakia is Bratislava, a lot of people are strange to it, in Europe is also unknown, because there are too many cities with beautiful scenery in Europe. Bratislava's architecture is mostly classical style, giving people a very rustic feeling. And it looks simple, but there is no kind of rustic and lovely taste. Watch: There are many famous sculptures of the civilian image in the center of the old Town, and the popular sculptures of these ordinary people also impress the tourists, two of whom are the most well-known. The statue of "fallen soldier", wearing a standard Napoleon hat and a overcoat, bent over the back of a bench, he was smug or down, half his face was covered with a brim, and his expression could not be seen clearly. It is said that this was a soldier of Napoleon's army, who remained in Slovakia forever because he was left behind, and that he also became a fun sculpture to accompany tourists in pictures. Slovakia's famous sculpture, "Plumber Zumil," is leisurely "lying" next to the manhole cover in a street sewer, "watching" pedestrians hurrying through the streets. Visitors praised the sculpture as Bratislava's unique "brass humor" and affectionately called it "voyeur" In addition to the two most famous, the city also has a large number of celebrity statues and mythical statues, and so on, is simply a city of sculpture.
