Love padlocks in Dubrovnik Love padlocks in Dubrovnik Mark Thomas

Dubrovnik’s Love Lock Wall – forever, together in Dubrovnik

By  Mar 12, 2018

Boninovo – a place where love is treasured in Dubrovnik. With panoramic views over the Adriatic Sea the security fence stands guard over the sheer cliff drop, and apart from this more practical purpose it also holds romantic dreams.

This seemingly plain green fence has become Dubrovnik’s love lock wall. It is hard to say when it started, at least ten years ago is our best guess, but now the fence is awash with pledges of undying love from all over the world.

Padlocks with the initials, messages, hearts and poems are snapped into place on the fence and the keys are then thrown in the sea. It the modern day version of carving your names in a tree trunk, but once more environmentally friendly.

“Love U 4ever,” from a Swiss couple – “Be my Valentine” in French and “U complete me” from Juan in Mexico. The Dubrovnik love fence is as international as the guests that land every summer.

If you want to add your own enteral love message on a padlock then from the Old City head up the road from Pile Gate for around a kilometre, when you get close the clank of padlocks in the wind will led the way.
