In many ways this is not much more than just another bridge, but the symbols reflecting the year of construction add an extra design touch, and the dragon statues, 2 on each side, are very beautiful structures!

We saw the famed dragon bridge from our small boat cruising on the river and what an inspiring vision it was at night. Our guide gave us a good explanation of the dragon and why it has been chosen as the emblem for the city.

Just a cool bridge with the dragon's mounted at each corner. A picture perfect opportunity for a selfie.

This bridge has four dragons, I do not find it so special, but it is in the city centre and near the city market which is very lively on weekends and not far from the funicular to the city castle.

It was built in 1900-1901. It is original name is Franz Joseph Bridge but because of the 4 dragon statues it is known as dragon bridge. It is the first concrete bridge in Ljubljana.

in a town full of bridges. Nonetheless, this one has superb art nouveau detailing. Plus it has 4 more dragons than the Triple Bridge.

I love the bridges of Ljubljana, but this one is special. Not only does it have some very cool dragons (the symbol of the city) but the other creatures sculpted from bronze and copper on the bridge are well worth a look. From here it's just a few minutes' walk to the Triple Bridge, the Old Town, the funicular to... More

You rarely find a bridge guarded by four frightening dragons, so well designed they almost look real. Their stands are high, so you have to look up on them, making them even more frightening. I have never seen a real dragon (who has?) and wondered if they are 'life' size. Maybe the 'real' ones are even bigger? I recommend all... More

The dragons are great. The bridge is quite beautiful but not awesome. If you're thinking of visiting Ljubjana and want an advice, here it is: Go there in your teens or twenties, before going to Wien, Venice or Prague. Otherwise it's quite tedious. You'll have a déjà vu in a smallish size which ruins the whole visit.
