Why locals love it

Due to a red graffiti that kept appearing since the 1990s, Zagreb’s oldest railway bridge was locally known as the Hendrix Bridge. What started as a spontaneous act of a few teens who were hanging out in the rock clubs on the river banks, found successors for over two decades, so a petition was launched to officially rename the bridge in 2016.

Why you should visit it

It was planned to let local artists paint over the whole bridge to make a real tribute to Jimi the guitar legend, but so far only a few colorful lights have been installed, while, ironically, the graffiti has stopped appearing since then. Nevertheless, the riverbanks are still a great spot to spend your sunny afternoons at!

Special tip

The local brewery Medvedgrad has launched a beer named after the bridge and which can be bought in their pubs.
