As you may know , that is not only the city ; it is the country where the special word is in the name " sLOVEnia " :-) You can see thousands of different padlocks both sides of the bridge

The Butchers' Bridge is a footbridge crossing the river Ljubljanica in Ljubljana, It connects the Ljubljana Central Market and the Petkovšek Embankment and it was opened only in July 2010. The original idea for a bridge on the site was planned in the 1930s by...More

This is a rather ordinary bridge between the triple bridges and the dragon bridge. However, what makes it interesting is all of the "love locks" and of course, the interesting statues.
