If you skip it, you will not miss a thing. Too many tourists around it, taking photos. Rub his nose, make a wish... if you believe in the stories. :)

Difficult name for foreigners, means Happy Chimney Sweeper in English. Located near Old Town in Karjavarava Square and since 2010 it's been one of the most funniest statues in Tallinn. It should bring you luck, if you rub one it's buttons(it's already different colour!)
