2 Mysteriously standing in Marnix Park, this statue is of a headless musician. The strange part is that the sculptor is unknown and mysterious. He created the sculptures between 1982 and 1999 and left these bronze sculptures in places around the city. Speculations say that he was a doctor. Identify the city.

3 The visualisation of a funny and exciting concept makes this statue impressive. It depicts an animal wearing a space helmet with oxygen supply, floating in the air, giving the impression of this animal traveling in space. The statue is housed in the city of Stockholm in Sweden. Identify the animal.

4 This guy, peeping from the edge of the street in Bratislava, in Slovakia looks like he’s about to shoot a photo of the people around. He used to stand on the corner of Radnicná and Laurinská Streets, where a restaurant used to function. People stand with him and peek from his side. What is the statue called?

5 This a trail of iron footwear standing as a monument to the thousands executed along with this riverbank during WWII. Film director Can Togay created shoes on this river.
