Then the cream of the crop at the city of Ljubljana, in my opinion.

Being a symbol of the city of Ljubljana as well, the dragon sits on the four sides of the bridge. The slaying of dragon released the waters and ensured the fertility of the earth, according to the Slavic myth.
So they’re yet to be slain.. Ummm..

Designed by Jurij Zaninović, is often regarded as the most beautiful bridge produced by the Vienna Secession, and I totally agree with it.
Ljubljana is worth visiting just to take a look at this beautiful bridge.

The dragons will wag their tails when a VIRGIN crosses the bridge, according to local legends.
But I didn’t have a chance to witness a waggle, unfortunately.
