It's a neat bridge that offers a nice view of the river walk. This would be a fun place for couples to go to "seal their love" by locking a padlock on the bridge and tossing the key into the river.

This is a modern bridge which in the summer they remove the mats that cover the glass on either side. So you can see the boats go underneath you or go below the bridge and get another view.

This is one of the most interesting bridges in Ljubljana with some interesting statues. The main marketplace is located near it.

There were butcher shops beside this bridge so it's called Butcher's bridge. These shops had been changed to coffee shops and restaurants now. The bridge was built by glass and metal with some sculptures at both ends and sides of the bridge. This bridge was also changed to a "love-lock" bridge though the no. of locks are not numerous.

This modern glass and metal bridge is a beautiful contrast to all the ancient bridges and buildings nearby. It is very central to all the other attractions in the city and you will probably end up crossing it a number of times. Yes, the locks on bridges thing is now a bit overdone, but it is still pretty and romantic... More

Butcher's Bridge is the bridge with all of the locks, of course. It's a neat little bridge to at least stop by for a quick visit. There are cafes and gelato stops nearby, too.

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 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”.
