The Butchers' Bridge (Mesarski most), built in 2010, connects Ljubljana's Central Market, designed by the famous Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik, with the Petkovškovo nabrežje embankment. It stands on the site where Jože Plečnik anticipated the building of a bridge almost one hundred years ago. Its concept being partially artistic, the bridge is decorated with statues by the renowned Slovenian sculptor Jakov Brdar.
Since the bridge occupies the site in between the Central Market's former butchers' stalls, the sculptures tell a story about the area's past. The large statue standing on the Petkovškovo nabrežje side of the bridge depicts Prometheus while the miniature statues on the parapet playfully allude to the activity going on at the market stalls.
