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 has glass panels in the floor that are very well lit night it seems to me that it has more charm, is filled with padlocks, but also possesses pacifiers (do not know why) is located between the bridge of the dragon and the triple bridge. On one side of the bridge ends the week there are fair and market, on the other hand, there are many bars.

  • ... over the bridge to go because MOST restaurant is waiting for the other side. Otherwise, it's not "interesting", Yes :) known castles on the bridge railing.

  • Particular bridge to padlocks hung lovers. It is interesting for the glass floor. Very nice to see and cross in the evening when the lights with the flowing water bring this beautiful flooring.
