The Ljubljana Dragon Bridge appears in the most recognizable images of Ljubljana. The four dragon statues are a masterpiece and a unique creation of technical heritage and Art Nouveau architecture.

The central of the three bridges forming the Triple Bridge has stood in place since 1842. Between 1929 and 2931, the side bridges, intended for pedestrians, were added to the original stone brigde and as such created a unique architectural gem of Ljubljana. The metal railing were removes and all three bridges were furnished with massive stones and lamps.
