Butcher's Bridge, Ljubljana
(3.1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was especially nice to go under the bridge lit up with the boat at night. I was in fact used to photograph it and admire it from the banks of the Lublianika, the Plečnik or out of curiosity to stop and read the phrases of love on many padlocks. It is not the oldest in fact dates back a few years ago in 2010 and is called so because in this area there were butchers ' stalls and the bridge is the fulfillment of modern architect who had designed one at the same spot ever made. The reflections of illuminated bridge are mirrored on the calm river but also on two glass walkways of the bridge creating a romantic atmosphere as seen in the attached photos If this review did you like, you can read about my many other for Ljubljana and I like clicking on: is it useful?

  • 因為Ljubljana 河其實不寬、所以這座橋也鬥很短! 這座有點像巴黎的哪座愛情之鎖橋ㄧ樣! 橋的兩側鋼絲上都被鎖上愛情的鎖以象徵永恆不變的感情 
  • Here is they're fine the padlocks! No that would be nasty this bridge; they're like a glove. Create a unique atmosphere in the evening
