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

The glass edges on Butcher's Bridge are a bit disconcerting to me, but Jakov Brdar's art makes up for it. I hope that the "tradition" of love locks on the bridge stops, as it would be a pity to see the bridge damaged because of the weight of the locks.

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.
