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

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.

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 bridge is highly photographed - mainly due to the abundance of love locks that have been attached all over the bridge. The bridge also contains some interesting sculptures. Worth a visit.

Modern bridge in the middle of the old Plecnik's market. The market it's a must if you'r in Ljubljana.

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. But this is an epidemic which apparently spreads all over the Europe. Nothing but... More
