Jason, the Argonauts and the dragon

The town’s landmark of Ljubljana, Slovenia is situated on Zmajski most – the Dragon bridge crossing Ljubljanica river. As the legend says, Ljubljana was founded by Jason and his Argonauts who have slain a dragon here. The bridge is close to the city center and to the amusement street Trubarjeva cesta.

The bridge has four dragon statues and was built in the beginning of the 20th century under the reign of Austro-Hungaria. It is a Vienna Secession style bridge and the people say that for a virgin crossing the bridge the dragons will wag their tails. Check it out! 😉
