Nice art

On this bridge you find some nice statues. One of the bridges that you will pass while you are exploring the Ljubljana city center.

Although this bridge has an interesting history - which you will hear is you do a walking tour with a guide - it is nothing special to look at. It has wire ropes that allow individuals to attach "love locks" on it which actually makes it look quite junky!

The bridge is fairly near the centre of Ljubljana Old Town. It has see through panels up both sides so you can see into the canal. It is also where people put locks on (though I do wonder if the metal cables are taken out from time to time to get the locks off). One thing that did surprise me... More

It is defiantly worth a visit, we spent a lot of time here, as there is some great bars near it, the class walkways and padlocks make it a great stopping place for pictures.

The area around has several bars and eating places, so it is buzzing with activity even late into the night. Street performances occasionally nearby.

Padlocks as in other European cities. One part of floor is glass so I didn't step there. I have vertigo. But nice bridge :-)

similar situation in Paris (where the railing had been removed) and this is just the start as there are lots of gaps left for you to hook one there

Bridge is interesting glass square over Ljubljanica. Better part of the bridge are bronze sculptures, work of Jakov Brdar. Lovers can lock their love on the bridge, too. Nice view to Tromostovje and Dragon's Bridge.
