Interesting art

Sculptures abound on this bridge. Locks of love, as well. This is he center of the 3 bridges. They are allfairly close together, so be sure to walk across each one.

Butcher's bridge was already planned to be built by Slovene greateset architect Jože Plečnik. But was finally built in 2010 and immediatelly padlocks of couples in love started appereaning on its steel wires symbolising their eternal love. There are some statues and sculptures as well.

Each city needs a padlock bridge and Ljubljana has it in the Butcher's bridge. It's a farely new bridge but already packed with padlocks. You can also see grotesque statues of Adam and Eve, Satyr and Prometheus there - all quite funky looking.

Nice small bridge in the town center near great pubs and bars. Place where you can lock your love with message. Nice for walk.

Also known as Lover's Bridge with many padlocks on both sides, lightened at nights, having Prometheus and Adam, Eve sculptures seems as they made from mud as in the mythology

This bridge's floor is partially glass - an attraction not for those who are scared of walking on top of glass above the river. Otherwise this is just a bridge among many others in town.

Modern bridge lined with ubiquitous padlocks of love. That's it. It crosses the river. The visitor to Ljubljana will almost certainly walk across it sometime during their visit.

If this bridges job is to get pedestrians from one side of the river to the other then it succeeds without fault
