This bridge is where lovers come to attach a clock and throw away the key to show their devotion to the love of their life. It has great views up the river and is close to a host of great places to enjoy a beer, wine or coffee or a meal.

One of the latest brdges build over Ljubljanica but interesting. I like different statues and the part of the bridge with a glass - a bit scary to walk on it, but fun.... It is not far from the Presernov square and just steps away from the market.

All these love lock bridges are now a little overrated. They are in every big city in the world. What started to be a nice tradition, is now a very common thing to do - put locks on bridges, to the point where few bridges have interdictions because of their weight on the structure. I was flying with a friend... More

Butcher's bridge is a bridge of love how I call it. It is because of all the padlocks representing the love and passion of two lovers. Romantic for couples, interesting site to see for everyone else. A peculiar statue is located on the bridge. I only recommend more precaution in the winter time on the glass part of the bridge... More

If you are into sculptures make sure you stop by the Butcher's Bridge. Jakov Brdar, a local artist, was so well received that his work is now permanent. All unique pieces that pull you in for a few minutes.

Butcher's Bridge is a larger more modern walking bridge that allows passage over the canal. It is a steel bridge, with glass located along the sides for viewing the water below. There are a few steps on the side located closest to the market area. The sides of the bridge are lined with locks (some have pacifiers and other items... More

Very nice. Near the public market and coffee shops. Near the square and a very wide bridge. Neo modern design with metal statues of Adam and Eve and dragon skulls. Most important is the viee of the water and remember that area in France where people lock their love on the bridge and throw the key in the river?.This is... More

Modern, slippery when wet and in the middle of market bustle. I do not like the bridge (especially the heads and statues) but I like the surrounding of the bridge and the views.

The Butchers bridge is one of the modern bridges in Ljubljana. It's made of steel and glass. Like some bridges in other cities, there are a lot of locks on this bridge, hung here by couples. On the bridged are alos some pretty nice modern statues.
