Many Ljublijana's attractions are overrated such as this Bridge, which you can see as you stroll a long Ljublijanica's canal. It crosses the canal somewhere between Dragon's and triple bridges. C U Around

We bought a lock as was fascinating to see all the locks with names and dates of people's visits. Still plenty of more space left to fill. You never know we may come back to see if it is still there ......

The place has a nice vibe. It is 50 m from Dragon's Bridge and another 50m from Trimostovije, right on your main track. There are some quite unusual monuments and hundreds of love locks. Take some love photos at the sunset.

This is a lovely pedestrianised bridge with a sculpture depicting it's links to butchers on one side. A place where lovers can also declare their love for each other by fixing a padlock to the railings. Good views up and down river of the triple and dragon bridges too so get your cameras ready.

A shorter version of the bridge you might find a pair us but very nice in the center of town that allows easy access to old town and the shops

This is a modern footbridge, built in 2010, connecting the Central Market and the Petkovsek Embankment , and made with steel wire railings. It has become the custom for people to attach love padlocks all along the railings before throwing the keys into the Ljubljanica river below. If you look carefully, you can see flat bronze pebbles with faces strewn... More

Butcher's bridge sounds so sinister a name for this bridge where lovers go to hang a padlock to show their lasting love

This modern bridge, with metal railings and glass inlay in the floor, is an interesting contrast to the more historical Triple and Dragons' Bridges. The Mythological sculptures at each end are beautifully sculpted and the lovers' padlocks on the rails give the bridge it's own unique feel.
