“interesting history”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The history of the locks on the bridge was interesting but you can "see" it in 5 minutes. Don't go out of your way to see it as there's really not much to it. We took the free tour & they brought us here & described it's history. It's located about a 5 minute walk to the town square.

“Lovers' bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

This bridge is quite interesting - it contains countless padlocks attached to the sides. Each padlock symbolises the love of 2 persons; whose names are usually written on the padlock itself. The bridge has some grotesque statues but these add to its magic. If you'd like to take some pictures with the river and the Triple Bridge, this is also the place to go to.

“Clever Bridge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

According to my tour guide this is a bridge designed by a man, and a perverted one at that. Haha, both sides are glass and just below is a dock to board the cruises on the canal. As my tour guide stated, when it's hot and the ladies are wearing skirts, guys will wait under here on the prowl... how creepy lol

“Take a padlock”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This bridge offers great photo ops. It is just round the corner from the open air market. If you are in love take a padlock with your name etc on it and add it to the thousands of padlocks attached to both sides of this bridge.

“A Common Sight in the East and Balkans”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This bridge is good if you haven't seen much of the East. The locks are symbols of love or weddings of people. You can see names of people and the year bonded to the bridge and the many differing types of locks.
