Although very modernistic architectural bridge with glass walk it is also romantic (with all its padlocks) and maybe the best viewpoint on Ljubljanica river in whole city. In hot summer days it also almost always guarantees a refreshing breeze.

It's worth seeing it. Nice built bridge with an interesting story. Lots of lovepadlocks. We added another one. :)

It's a nicely built bridge worth a few minutes of looking around and taking a few photos. There are some interesting metal sculptures nearby as well, but it's only a site worth a few minutes before moving on.

Butcher’s Bridge became quite famous and one of top spots in town. Not only because of the decoration with works made by the sculptor Jakov Brdar but mostly because it became a “love bridge”.

Before going, I had no idea Ljubljana had a love lock bridge and while this is much the same as other bridges (of it's kind), everything in Ljubljana is so quaint & charming, the bridge stands out as better than most. The sculptures also add another layer of interest.

As part of a walking tour of the city you will cross the bridge more than once. Understanding the history of the bridge really adds to your appreciation. The locks were very romantic.

I like to see something modern amongst the old bridges and this is interesting with its glass floor and bronzes. We liked it ...

Another of Ljubljana's interesting bridges, this one is more like a town square. Views of the canal and some of the many restaurants is cool. Glass panels give a view of the water and the lover's locks are everywhere.

It has some interesting bronze headless statues and glass panels which if they were clean you could see the river below. It also suffers from the locks on the chains across the bridge. Other than that it is a relatively modern bridge that gets you from one side of the river to the other.

The only thing interesting here is the glass pavement in the part of the bridge, so you get a glimpse of walking on water. Sculptures are so so, I'm not a big fan of them. The love locks are boring in every city now, it's known where their origin is.
