Had many locks on it. Big part of it was glass so you can see the water if you look at your feet. Had some weird looking statues ( at least I found them so)

The bridge is central but not particularly attractive. I would not really consider it a tourist attraction. Its only claim to fame is its use by lovers to attach padlocks as a sign of their love

It's one of those bridges that lovers declare their undying commitment by signing a padlock and attaching it to the railings. Either side of the centre part of the walkway are glass panels so you can walk across and see the water rushing past below you feet. As with many places around town, there are statues, both large and small.... More

There are many attractions to view in Ljubjlana and just about all of them fit into the "look at, read up on the history, marvel a little, and move on". This is not meant to be derogatory, there are just many small attractions in the town. You will undoubtedly walk over this bridge many times. Its a ltlle interesting because... More

This bridge, as well as all the bridges in Ljubljana have historical significance. A little hint - some butchers during some times in history couldn't count therefore creating the Butcher's Bridge. More on the free walking tour in Ljubljana

This modern bridge in the city center of Ljubljana is just a normal footbridge. The only attraction seems to be the hundreds of padlocks.

Unusually a glass bottomed bridge with love locks on the railings. There are some gruesome statues on pedestals on the bridge and nearby.
