The bronze statue of a Napoleonic soldier, a popular photo-op for tourists, is back in Bratislava’s Main Square. It has finally returned after an investigation and repairs lasting two years. The restoration was slowed down by the protracted investigation and in addition as it is a piece of art, the Old Town had to respect the opinions of the inheritors of the copyright of its creator, sculptor Juraj Meliš.
“After the investigation was over, sculptor Daniel Janec repaired the sculpture,” Bratislava's Old Town council informed on social networks, adding that a young man has confessed to the vandalism.
