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

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.

Its a nice bridge, but has nothing so special about it...Ljubljana has many other bridges. But of course you have to pass by, in fact, if you are around the old town it will be impossible not to pass by.

Bridge is best visited with a guide from the "Free Walking Tour" who will explain the history and use of the bridge. It was helpful to learn about the various bridges surrounding the old town and castle.
