Love Locks on Bernatka Bridge

Every European city has that bridge adorned with locks of lovers.  In Krakow, look no further than the bridge that connects Kazimierz and Podgorze, aka, the Jewish district and former Jewish Ghetto.  You won’t find random men selling locks around the area, like Paris, so bring your own.  But you will find whole sections of the bridge’s railing cut off, where a lover or two has come back to take off his/her love-lock!


And if you’re crossing the bridge to begin with, go ahead and spend some time in Podgorze, Krakow’s up and coming neighborhood…

    In many Indian temples there is a similiar tradition of tying pieces of cloth on a railing or tree for luck
