This really caught our eyes at it reminded us of our time in Paris. The bridge is small with a ton of locks on it. We are just wondering how much longer before it gets to heavy.

An interesting modern bridge, so wide in fact that its almost like a floating square rather than a bridge to get from one side of the river to the other. I can't imagine how a bridge with 'Butcher' in its title has anything to do...More

One of the several bridges in Ljubljana designed as a "floating square" of the city. Surely a LOT of padlocks and interesting composition of stone and glass. Good bars nereby and some strange statues representing contemporary art. Central market is just near the bridge. Reachable...More

Be there if you want to lock your heart in Slovenia and come back for it. The locks are very colourful and nicely layout versus the random ones in Paris. Good for photo background, especially for lovers.

There are many bridges connecting the new and old city and this one takes on the Lovers Theme similar to the St. Charles Bridge in Prague. Love locks are found on the bridge cables as you cross.

Is this a new trend or what? For my recent trips to some cities of Central Europe , I noted that padlocks are attached to some bridge railings. What do these padlocks mean or signify? love is forever? only for local Slovenes? foreign tourists included?...More
