It is a novel sight to see all sorts of locks on both sides of this bridge. It is a symbol of love and people get different locks on the wire ropes of the bridge!

One of the many bridges across the Ljubljanica river, but quite special because of its modernity and a couple of odd-looking sculptures around it.

Saw this bridge the first time in the early morning with no tourists present. Amazing art on the bridge. The many locks of love were both picturesque and touching. Don't miss the glass portions. Bridge connects two commercial districts (restaurants and vendors). Later in the day it was so busy with foot traffic I could hardly get across.

This is a modern bridge, opened in 2010. It's design is fairly simple and the wire railings offers an opportunity to hang locks (the keys get thrown in the river) as an expression of undying love. The bridge's other name is the bridge of love. Adam and Eve sculpture show them as they are driven from paradise, Prometheus, with his... More

This is a new bridge for Ljubljana. It is fairly plain, except for the glass on the edge of the bottom of the the bridge. The sides are covered in locks which may soon be unusual as most other cities are banning the locks on bridges due to safety issues (they make the bridge rust and add a lot of... More

The bridge is nothing spectacular, the reason I made the effort to post was to mention that this is the bridge from which 3 or 4 of the main river cruise boats depart. You'll find a boat departing from here around every 30 mins. Tickets are bought on the bridge (East side). Adult tickets cost 9 Euros and boats sale... More

To lock a love on the glass-concrete bridge in the center of Ljubljana is one of the most romantic things to do in Ljubljana. Couples from around the world are locking their love with couple of promisses. Their relationship will never end, might be they do separate but this lock will always be locked here connecting them together. <3

This bridge is beautifull. It's made out of glass on the edges, so you can directly see the river below it.

The bridge is quite new. It is located between the Triple Bridge and the Dragon Bridge. It a footbridge, opened in 2010. Jože Plečnik had the original idea for the bridge in 1930s but World War II pushed these ideas far into future. If you have a partner or a husband/wife it is lovely to engrave a lock and leave...
