On the Bridge of Love-tradition continues

Vrnjacka Banja, Serbia

Caption: The legend says: At the dawn of the First World War, a schoolteacher Nada and a Serbian officer Relja started having deep feelings for each other. They fell in love and made a commitment to each other. It was a love widely talked about, attracting the attention of all the people living at Vrnjacka Banja (Spa). But the war did break out with all the horrors it entails- Relja went off to war fought in Greece. He left never to return on account of a beautiful Greek woman he had fallen in love with, and therefore broke up the engagement with Nada. The legend does not say anything about his further fate, whereas, on the other hand, every inhabitant of Vrnjacka Banja is familiar with Nada's destiny. Owing to overwhelming sorrow, she faded away day after day and finally died, young and miserable. After the tragic Nada's fate, many girls, wishing to keep their own romances, started writing down their names along with the names of their lovers on padlocks that they bound to the railing of the bridge which used to be the favorite meeting place of Nada and Relja. And the keys were symbolically thrown in a small river under the Bridge of Love… This old story without happy end, obviously, inspire and today's young lovers :=)

Hmmm, this is a different spin on Valentine's Day! Isn't it interesting what legends take hold, and last?
