Dragons are a common theme in Ljubljana and you'll likely see statues, carvings, and inscriptions of them scattered throughout the city. So much so that Ljubljana is now nicknamed “dragon city”. The dragons are related to an ancient Greek myth. Legend suggests that this was the city where Jason and his Argonauts killed a dragon to steal the coveted golden fleece. The Art Nouveau bridge pays homage to this with four copper dragons. The pedestrian bridge crosses the Ljubljanica River and is northeast of Vodnik Square. On the south bank of the bridge is Ljubljana Central Market. It's a lively street market selling tasty food. It's open every day except Sunday. The main produce sold are fish, fruit, baked goods, dairy products, and meat. Picture: Eugene Kuznetsov - Unsplash
