In Vrnjacka Banja, there is a famous pedestrian bridge, called BRIDGE OF LOVE. This bridge is known as the earliest mention of the love padlocks tradition, where padlocks are left on the bridge railing by couples as a sign of their everlasting love. Bridge of love is the best known among the town's fifteen bridges. This bridge is a symbol of unhappy love of two young people, called NADA and RELJA and the place where they used to meet.
