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 dragon is a symbol of Ljubljana, so tourists tend to walk on it, take pictures. Four bronze dragons adorning the bridge are covered with green plaque, hence the association with the green bridge.

  • Beautiful bridge with four dragons to control the angles, you get there from the third deck skirting the ships.

  • 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
  • The stories and the branding of Ljubljana as the dragon town is really well done. This bridge isn't too spectacular, but the dragons on its front are great, and you kind of get into the whole story about Ljubljana. The reason why I give it 5 stars are the stories.
