Butcher's Bridge, Ljubljana

(3.2/5 based on 360+ 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.

  • 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 railing...  more »
