If you're visiting you should be able to take 5 minutes and walk across all the bridges in Ljubljana. This one I would see but do not expect to spend there 1 hour as it is not that long.

This bridge has many statues and other weird sculptures and the history of the bridge, development and planning is of interest. Lovers leave padlocks attached to all parts of the bridge.

One of the many beautiful historic bridges that cross the River Ljubljanica Kanal. Close to restaurants, bars and shopping. Convenient way to walk across kanal.

This is the most interesting bridge in town, mainly because of Jakov Brdar’s sculptures and miniatures. It is a real open-air gallery of art. Shame that it is much mauled by lovers who hang padlocks with their names all over the bridge including the sculptural miniatures.

A modern contemporary bridge that has be adorned with love locks. The glass walkways and modern metal components add to this striking bridge , not grand but sleek. Good spot for photo's of town and nearby sculptural pieces.

Easy to find, in the heart of the city, with some sculptures around, worth the visit. You can bring your locker and apply it there.
