Sopot

Parasolnik

  ul. Bohaterow Monte Cassino 31, Sopot     more than a year ago
Officially unveiled in 2000, local artist Tadeusz Fołtyn's quirky bronze statue commemorates one of Sopot’s more colourful and controversial former inhabitants. Czesław Bulczyński was a circus clown before having a stab at conformity and opening an umbrella shop in Sopot (parasolnik means umbrella-maker in Polish), and was often seen about town 'wearing strange outfits' and 'doing extravagant things' before passing away on November 9, 1992.
