The best and most interesting bridge over the Kanal .

Unusually a glass bottomed bridge with love locks on the railings. There are some gruesome statues on pedestals on the bridge and nearby.

There are many attractions to view in Ljubjlana and just about all of them fit into the "look at, read up on the history, marvel a little, and move on". This is not meant to be derogatory, there are just many small attractions in the town. You will undoubtedly walk over this bridge many times. Its a ltlle interesting because... More

This bridge, as well as all the bridges in Ljubljana have historical significance. A little hint - some butchers during some times in history couldn't count therefore creating the Butcher's Bridge. More on the free walking tour in Ljubljana

This modern bridge in the city center of Ljubljana is just a normal footbridge. The only attraction seems to be the hundreds of padlocks.

Over the Ljubljanica this bridge connects the market with the other side. It has glass bottom, so you can really see the river flowing under you. There are locks on both side of the bridge. There are some very nice statues, for instance small animal figures.

From this bridge , that the floor is made of glass, you can have a nice view of the river and the sides with buldings.The locks symbolize the everlasting love.

This bridge is very pretty and very different to everything else. It's all frosted glass which is cool and its covered in pad locks.

This bridge seems to be quite iconic in the city. Be careful if you are wearing a skirt and there are boats going along underneath as there floor is glass. We don't recommend doing the canal boat tour that is advertised on this bridge as the driver was very rude to quite a few of the passengers.

This bridge is located near the Central market in between the Three Bridges and Dragon Bridge. This is a small and seem only for pedestrian bridge. There are thousands of locks on it, so it seems to be a romantic place for those are in love. The locks symbolizing the commitment of their love, maybe?

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!
