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.

It's the main bridge to put up a lock with your loved one. Also the statues on the bridge are quite unique and fascinating.

one of the best modern bridges i`ve come across on my world journeys, the glass, see through, panels of the walkway was very good, seeing right down on top of the river below, very clever idea, the views of the gently curving river are marvelous, with the romanesque covered market especially fine. Bit tired of seeing locks everywhere, they do... More

Lots of lovers locks at this bridge. The statues are a bit scary, they look like they have been butchered. ;)

You can take funicular to get to Ljubljana castle. It's a must see! It has a nice view and a good restaurant with quality selection of food and wines.

We loved this bridge. Brought back memories of the bridge in Paris with the locks. While not quite on the same scale this is still charming and we enjoyed the musicians that would play there as well

Butchers bridge - AKA Lovers Bridge with it's infinite locks with names of lovers hung on the bridge and the keys are thrown in the river of couples! We did this also, found out they cut off the locks every 3-6 months due to weight of bridge and in 5 weeks we found out how fast that bridge fills up... More

I like the form of the bridge, as well as the sculptures, both big and small, that adorn the bridge andvits' approaches
