Schoener Naci (Beautiful Ignaz), statue is an elegant symbol of the city life of the early 20th century.  He is greeting people walking down Rybarska brana street. The legend says he had lost his mind because of an unrequited love. Although he was very poor, he was walking the streets in Bratislava always well dressed for almost 40 years. The townies used to give him some food and he was, in return, giving flowers to the ladies passing by.  Bratislava Slovakia
