Ok, Ljubljanica is cool to look at, especially during the kayak races, but why each bridge is promoted so much is beyond me. In recent times people have begun putting padlocks on the bridge's chains, as a sophomoric attempt to represent everlasting love, but it is just an idea stolen from elsewhere. Ljubljana's center is wonderful, but to promote each bridge is a little bit much.

This was the bridge i was looking forward to seeing the most because of the padlock theme.As we approached for a photo we saw a lot of red tape running across the bridge which spoilt some photographs.The canal rides are caught from here too as we were pestered on numerous occasions.A bit of an anti climax really.

It's another bridge. Meh. Lit up at night unlike the others here, but more famed for becoming the place of "love locks" like Paris - don't do this. The weight of locks on the bridge plus impact of throwing a key into the water is somewhat untenable long term.

Butcher's Bridge is one of several bridges that cross the Ljubljanica river in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. There are some interesting sculptures on the bridge, but the main attraction is the padlocks that appear on the steel chains of the bridge, symbolizing eternal love for the couples who put them there.

Again, another one of the bridges which cross the canal/river. There are statues on it, which are interesting. Also, often there are musicians/buskers.
