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

The bridge is located in the area of the market in the middle of the city center. it has a lot of locks and from there you can make some nice pictures of the other bridges

Had many locks on it. Big part of it was glass so you can see the water if you look at your feet. Had some weird looking statues ( at least I found them so)

It was unique to me because I had never seen anything like it. There are some interesting sculptures in the area so it's definitely worth a stop if you are in the area.

The bridge is central but not particularly attractive. I would not really consider it a tourist attraction. Its only claim to fame is its use by lovers to attach padlocks as a sign of their love

It's one of those bridges that lovers declare their undying commitment by signing a padlock and attaching it to the railings. Either side of the centre part of the walkway are glass panels so you can walk across and see the water rushing past below you feet. As with many places around town, there are statues, both large and small.... More
