    Must see
    We loved looking at the locks and the sculptures on the bridge. It's a must see in our option, before the remove the locks like we have been told will happen in the near future. One of our favourite parts of Krakow and the reassurance close by are wonderful!

    Another beautiful bridge
    There are several bridges that cross the River Vistula, one of the most eye catching is Father Bernatek Footbridge. Father Bernatek Footbridge ( Kladka Ojca Bernatica ) was constructed in 2010 at a cost of 38 million Złoty's, its most distinctive feature you'll notice as you cross the bridge are the beautiful acrobatic statues along the spans,its a very beautiful bridge that offers great views of the River Vistula. Well worth checking out if you're in the Jewish Quarter of Krakow.

    The "Bridge with All The Locks" that you've likely heard of.
    Lovely crossing with nice views down the river both sides. The sculptures hanging from the suspension arms give the bridge great character; but the stand-out feature has to be the locks. I found Kraków to be a relaxed city full of kind people and affectionate couples. These locks provide a very literal realisation of this in a way that's bound to bring a smile to your face.

To be honest I only walked across this to go between Kazimierz and Podgórze as the bridge links the two districts. It was actually a nice bridge erected over the Vistula River. Clean and well kept. There was some sort of popular tradition of couples attaching padlocks engraved with their names to the railings of the bridge! Loved the statues as well. Read up on it. Not the most scenic but you can see the River and you are likely to walk around the area anyway whilst visiting the city. Worth a stop.

Took brother and sister in law to visit prisoner of war camp their dad was held in. Salt mine a great surprise for them and the fact that it was Krakow's Xmas market they were expecting nothing like that. Recommend to anyone - taxis are carriages are a fair size pulled by two horses.

We stubbled across this bridge on the way to somewhere depressing. ..what a lovely sight. Lots of messages on padlocks, some old some new. Only problem there was no shop at either end selling padlocks!!! We wanted to do the same but alas it wasn't to be. Next time though ♡♥

Very original bridge over the Wisla river with some sculptures and full of locks for those who believe that their love will stay forever.

We really liked it!

We came under this on a good River Visla Cruise from Castle.
This is a really pleasing bridge on this tour.
Good architecture and you can see the manequins hanging from the structure. Also the padlocks of lovers who then throw the keys in the River.

I happened to stay in Kazimierz when I went to Krakow but let this be a reminder that if you are visiting the city that you should get out of the center for a while and go down to Kazimierz to enjoy the best food the city has to offer. Go for lunch then check out this beautiful new bridge with its whimsical and serene acrobatic sculptures as you walk another 15 minutes over to the Schindler Factory and Modern Art Museum. It's also the best view of the Vistula River where you can see large old brick walls retaining the banks.

Such a lovely idea! I would advise you to get a lock from home and have it engraved before you come as it's hard to find locks but you will if you look hard enough! I was proposed to here so it holds a sentimental value to me! I hope our lock lasts a while! It looks so nice lit up at night and it's near shindlers factory so very easy to find
