Walk across the Art Nouveau Dragon Bridge and admire the four large dragons protecting its corners, symbols from the city's coat-of-arms. Built at the very beginning of the 20th century, it was the city's first reinforced concrete bridge and Slovenia's first bridge paved with asphalt. Floral motifs decorate its arch and railings, while smaller griffins embellish the plinths of its eight bronze candelabras. Notice the dashes of red paint at the dragons' mouths and claws, recent additions by an anonymous enthusiast.

Dragon Bridge reviews
A bridge just for photos because it's for cars and not for pedestrians like other so be careful. Very close to funicular leading to the castle more »
Visiting Ljubljana’s famous Dragon Bridge is (a little) like participating in a fairytale - og maybe a Harry Potter movie. Nice! more »
A beautiful and ancient bridge. Decorated with dragon statues. There are many restaurants and cafes around. The Old Town area is the most beautiful in the city and along with this special bridge, a... more »
The Dragon Bridge is one of the many bridges that crosses the Ljubljana River to the old town, its most defining feature being the dragon statues that guard the bridge. It is a vehicle and pedestrian bridge that is used heavily by Slovenians and other than that, it is just a bridge. It is among one of the must-visit places in Ljubljana, though I would not put it too high on my list as the only thing you can do here is to photograph yourself next to the dragon. You can also enjoy the scenery of the river, though that itself can be done on the other bridges around Ljubljana too. If you have the time, by all means take a walk along the river and cross the many bridges that links the river, but I won't say that it's a must-visit place on its own.
This is without a doubt the best bridge. Believe me. All the other bridges? Total losers. Everyone says so. Even the pope.
Nice bridge in the city center of old Ljubljana. It's pity that is not better illuminated during the night - it would be great place for taking pictures.
Beautiful scenery, nice bridge with dragon guarding it. Near bridge you have everything - entry poitn to the castle, parking spots, great market, fish market, bars and pubs... Perfect spot to start city tour.
The Dragon Bridge, adorned with famous dragon statues, appears in the most recognizable images of Ljubljana. If you haven't been photographed next to a Dragon Bridge dragon, you can hardly claim that you have visited Ljubljana. The four dragon statues, which look slightly terrifying and almost real (if, of course, you believe that dragons might be real), are a masterpiece which has been exciting imagination since the bridge was built
