“Padlock bridge”
Review of Butcher's Bridge

Reviewed July 13, 2018

This is a strange bridge.....there are some very weird sculptures situated on it and at the end. The bridge has a section on each side that is glass/Perspex so you can see through it but unfortunately it is very dirty and very hard to see down below in places. This is one of the bridges that has caught on to the padlock craze and in one sense I understand the tradition behind it but on the other hand they are becoming very dated and tiresome to see and do spoil the actual bridges appearance. Nice for a quick photo situated in the main area but this one does get very busy and is the most popular.

Well, all the major cities around the world seem to have one so why not Ljubljana, which translated, means beloved? Easy to find if you are walking around the Old City...it is close to the open air market.

The bridge is full of these beautiful locks. The concept behind this is also fascinating, " You should cross the bridge together with your partner, lock your love by locking a lock to the bridge and throw the key away, so that no one can come between you"
Heard this story from one passer by. Crossing the bridge in the evening and seeing so many love stories locked is really romantic. Do not miss this place if you are with your partner.

Unlike many of the other bridges, this one has a glass walking surface. During our visit one of the glass sections was roped off it didn’t look damaged. The kid in me wanted to stand on it and find out. Wife wouldn’t let me. Spoilsport!
