It's a bridge with dragon sculptures, not much really to say about it! Definitely beats lions

Beautiful bridge with castle in the background. I actually preferred the cute little griffins to the dragons, but that's just me.

Cool bridge in Ljubljana! Of course, it's the dragon sculptures that steal the show.

Any bridge with dragons is pretty cool in my opinion! Plus, the dragon statues look like they'd come alive at any moment! Aside from the dragons, this bridge is also famous for being the first paved bridge in all of Slovenia, and one of the first reinforced with concrete in all of Europe.

Very pretty bridge connecting the old town with the modern part of town. Makes for some great pictures along the river front, and is on your way to the central market

Since it opened in 1901, Zmajski Most has been locked in a fierce competition with the castle and the conspicuously pink Franciscan Church for the title of Most Photographed Sight in Ljubljana. At any given moment during daylight hours (and only slightly less frequently at night) there is sure to be at least a person or two clicking away at one of the four large dragons guarding either side of the bridge or the smaller griffins that adorn the bottom of its eight lamp posts. Of course we're no exception, as we still remember the fog shrouded photo we snapped on our first trip to the city way back in the forgotten days of analogue film. More recently some amateur artiste apparently felt that the mythical beasts were lacking a certain je ne sais quoi and took it upon themself to add a smattering of red paint to their mouths and claws. The jury is still out on whether or not this is an improvement but it does amuse us whenever we walk past.

My favorite bridge of all the main bridges in town. The architecture and Art Nouveau dragons are is what makes it special.

This picturesque structure is a good example of Art Nouveau Style, one of the first of its type built in 1901 in iron and concrete. The four statuses of dragons on the corner tops are probably the most striking features.

Impossibile non farsi un selfie con il drago che fa la guardia a questo ponte del centro storico di Lubiana: lo Zmajski Most (Ponte del Drago) fu costruito per i 40 anni di regno dell’Imperatore Francesco Giuseppe, e infatti erano noto come Ponte del Giubileo. Poi la presenza dei grandi dragoni di rame battuto ha suggerito l'attuale (e più accattivante) nome. Una superstizione riguarda quanti lo attraversano...
