Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most), Ljubljana

4.0
Walk across the Art Nouveau Dragon Bridge (Zmajski Most) 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.

  • The Dragons adorning this temple represents one of the emblems of the city. Its location, near the Cathedral and the Esplanade of the market, make it a must-see during the travel through the Centre of the city.

  • Nice, a must if you go to Ljubljana, also because there is not much else to see. Read the story that binds the dragon to the city in order to enjoy to the fullest.

  • Fantastic ... Right near everything, nice that when children then tell historie, type that the Dragon lives again in the water that sometimes like them go above the Castle Tower and rest you see the view ... I'd say incredible.

  • It was all I hoped for, and more! I stayed a block away for approximately one week. My only regret is not going at different times (sunrise or sunset) to get a variety of photos of this spectacular bridge. Sigh...next time.
  • This is a pretty cool bridge, it has the dragons representing the leyendo of the city of Ljubljana where a hero defeated it long ago. The bridge is iconic and you can see the Castle from there up in the hill, which makes it a pretty good sight seeing spot. If you walk the river towards downtown from here, you'll see a lot of Christmas decorations and small shops, a Christmas market which you'll love. Enjoy!
  • Beautiful bridge guarded by four dragons, two on each end. There's a legend that the dragons' tails will move if a virgin ever crosses the bridge... wonder why it's never happened. ;)
  • Honestly I don't know how can it be that much fameuos that many city guide suggest it to see: it's a simple concrete bridge with dragons at the corners. There are many other bridges near and far which are more fancy or has historical background, or I don't know. Anyhow, the view is nice, the downtown is pretty, and you will see the bridge anyway if you come here!
  • Well photographed bridge in centre of town what more can you say takes you from one side of river to the other
