When going to the church check out the statue as really good. Nice park area as well so can stop and check out the area

A historical statue in the heart of Nitra just below the castle. I believ the saying goes he was 1 of the strongest men in Slovakia, and local people say the statue is holding the wall up. He also has a local Slovakian beer Corgan named after him!! Worth a visit while heading to the castle.

Legendary statue of Corgon, whi has fought against Osmans by throwing rocks on them. It is pitty, that statue is in bad condition, but I think, that whole castle together with this statue is must for every visitor in Nitra

I do not know what the Corgob is. But if you mean "CORGON" - than that is a statue of atlant placed in old city. This statue is connected to legend of blacksmith named Corgon who sawed city from osmans warriors.
