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.

  • Connecting bridge between the market and the "bar street". Under the bridge is the pier for a city tour by boat. Hot mulled wine was served in January.

  • Butcher newly rebuilt the bridge takes a lot of keys, such as Paris and Salzburg. Greece myths satyr and Masaccio's "expulsion from paradise" on the bridge and passengers will be Adam and Eve sculptures are placed. Other than that small bridge railing and be placed nearby. Toilets on the bridge prevented men and women divided into left and right. It is people coming to slide down stairs to the basement with a black slide. Because it is dangerous at night is caution.
