    Must see
    We loved looking at the locks and the sculptures on the bridge. It's a must see in our option, before the remove the locks like we have been told will happen in the near future. One of our favourite parts of Krakow and the reassurance close by are wonderful!

    Another beautiful bridge
    There are several bridges that cross the River Vistula, one of the most eye catching is Father Bernatek Footbridge. Father Bernatek Footbridge ( Kladka Ojca Bernatica ) was constructed in 2010 at a cost of 38 million Złoty's, its most distinctive feature you'll notice as you cross the bridge are the beautiful acrobatic statues along the spans,its a very beautiful bridge that offers great views of the River Vistula. Well worth checking out if you're in the Jewish Quarter of Krakow.

    The "Bridge with All The Locks" that you've likely heard of.
    Lovely crossing with nice views down the river both sides. The sculptures hanging from the suspension arms give the bridge great character; but the stand-out feature has to be the locks. I found Kraków to be a relaxed city full of kind people and affectionate couples. These locks provide a very literal realisation of this in a way that's bound to bring a smile to your face.

A nice bridge with plenty around it to see and some lovely views. Under the bridge was a footpath which was a nice walk during the surprisingly warm February weather.

This modern bridge has completely separate sections for pedestrians and cyclists - excellent. Linking Kazimierz and the former WWII Jewish ghetto, it is attractive with various suspended circus gymnast sculptures, which move gently in the wind.

An absolutely unique experience with floating and ever so slightly moving and balancing acrobat sculpture installations all across. Have never seen anything quite like it in all my travels.

To be honest I only walked across this to go between Kazimierz and Podgórze as the bridge links the two districts. It was actually a nice bridge erected over the Vistula River. Clean and well kept. There was some sort of popular tradition of couples attaching padlocks engraved with their names to the railings of the bridge! Loved the statues as well. Read up on it. Not the most scenic but you can see the River and you are likely to walk around the area anyway whilst visiting the city. Worth a stop.
