This bridge is for couples to lock their love. There were locks every where but the bridge was partly done with glass. Also many shapes and sizes of locks were used by people.

One of the few bridges in the Old Town area, it spans the lovely Ljubljana River. Notable are the padlocks covering the railings. The bridge is between the Dragon Bridge and the Triple Bridge behind Market Hall.

This bridge has many art sculptures, is easy to get to market (and Open Streets on Fridays). Lovers buy locks and place them on the bridge. Can also use public toilets on market side of bridge and catch a boat ride/tour of the river.
