In between the Triple bridge – Tromostovje, and the Dragon bridge – Zmajski most, there’s the Butcher’s Bridge – Mesarski most.
And on the riverwalk and on the bridge itself, there are many interesting, if grotesque, sculptures all around.

All made of brass, organic shapes reminding of aliens somehow.

Intimidating Satyr facing Ljubljana Castle.
Seems like all this intriguing bronze sculptures are of Slovene sculptor Jakov Brdar. Hooray to him!

Then there’s central market like all other european cities.

Can’t help but envy these lovely European local markets.. We’d better have something like these, fresh and lively, and well-organized markets everyone would be willing to stop by if only just for the heck of it.
