    Interactive map with sights

    The city of Ljubljana is known for its many sights and at the same time is known as a green city, with a number of beautiful landscape parks and the Botanical Garden, which has been operating since 1810.
    Tivoli, which is the central park of Ljubljana, is a popular spot for relaxation and socializing, as well as an open air exhibit featuring large format photographs. The image of the city of Ljubljana was marked by many historical periods, most certainly the oeuvre of world renowned architect Joze Plecnik. He also urbanized the central part of the city. Its seal is visible everywhere, most notably along the Ljubljanica River and the famous Triple Bridge. The Ljubljanica is with its neat banks, wildlife and lush greenery perfect for walking and sitting. The city center from the Dragon Bridge to Spica and along Gradascica all the way to Trnovo Church is one of the most beautiful, most pleasant and romantic areas of the city. The Butcher's Bridge is one of the newest bridges built in 2010. It connects the Petkovsek Embankment, Plecnik market and stands on the area where, about 100 years ago, the famous architect Plecnik envisioned the construction of the bridge. With its slim construction and two glass straps, it leaves unobstructed views of the Ljubljanica and its banks along the edge. The Butcher's Bridge is marked by statues of renowned Slovenian sculptor Jakov Brdar. The bridge is located in the center of the former butcher's hatches in the market and because of this, the sculptures tell the story in a unique way. Interesting are also smaller sculptures of tiny deformed creatures on the bridge fence.
    On the Petkovsek Embankment, the Butcher's Bridge marks the statue of Prometheus, and miniatures on the fence hint at what is happening in the market sheds. The Butcher's Bridge is also a bridge of love in Ljubljana. Many lovers symbolically locked their love on it with locks and then dumped keys into the Ljubljanica River.
