Butcher's Bridge, Ljubljana

3.3
Butcher's Bridge is a sort of an open-air gallery featuring sculptures and miniatures by contemporary Slovenian artist Jakov Brdar. While another famous Slovenian artist, Joze Plecnik, conceived the bridge in 1930s, the modern bridge, with a stairway at its left entry and glass walkways at the sides, is much simpler than the original plan. Walk among figures like Adam and Eve, Satyr and Prometheus, and take in great view of the city. Note the multitude of love locks that have been attached to the railing and even some sculptures.

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
