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.

  • 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
