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.

  • Welcome to one of the beautiful bridges in Ljubljana, Slovenia. This concrete bridge has four large Dragons guarding the portals on both sides of the bridge. These are most imposing metal sculptures and well photographed. A little scarry experience I would say. I've never been photo bombed by a Dragon!
  • A beautiful landmark in the very nice city center of Ljubljana. Absolutely worth a visit. Especially when the weather is good. A lot of people are there to give this part of town a vibrant vibe. It’s located in the old city center.
