Wel seeing your in the center of town you have to go check this out providing you have not wandered over it a few times already ;) The architecture is designed by a Croatian way back when and it is very very impressive looking bridge with plenty of history and tourists crossing it ;)

Form and function in harmony. Love both big and little dragon details as well as the more abstract decorative flourishes. Our apartment was between the Dragon and Butchers bridges and I would enjoy crossing one to get across to the market, and return by the other. A worthy symbol of this quirky, wonderful city

I loved the dragons and walked the bridge several times as it was so near Stari Tisler where I stayed. This bridge, a symbol of the city, has a legend that if a virgin walks across it, one of the dragons will wave its tail.

The bridge stands as a symbol of the city's fabled history which is based on the slaying of a dragon. All of the bridges in town are distinctive, but this is the most, in my opinion.

Nice for photos in the right light/angles. Small bridge, not so crowded in April. 2 minutes from the castle and short walk to the three bridges. Free toilets under the Dragon bridge on the castle side.

with a part glass floor, so girls take care, but nothing really special but it is the place to 'lock ones love' with a padlock. The reasons for the dragons being chosen is odd but why not.

According to the urban legend if a virgin crosses the bridge the dragons will shake their tails :) We didn't have any virgins at hand so we had to believe our tour guide :) It's a nice bridge built on Habsburg dynasties money. Since you'll be going through the market anyway, stop by and have a quick look.

The perfect place to photograph both the dragons and the castle on the hill. The view of the river and old town can be captured here as well.

The dragon bridge has exactly what it says dragons at each end. Also know as the mother in law bridge. The dragons come from the legend of Jason and the Argonauts and are very green
