Butcher's Bridge, Ljubljana

3.2
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.

  • The butcher bridge Mesarski most with a close proximity to the Flying Dragon bridges, with a love-locked, sweet, couples or romantic view of the bride.

  • Original is the butchers bridge but it should be the lovers bridge, many lovers goes there and check their love ones  more »
  • A nice bro, they're cozy with all the locks. Take the opportunity to buy a lock and lock your love, but you must not forget the key, keys must be thrown into the Canal otherwise you have failed with an everlasting love. History. And the construction of the bridge is interesting.
