In 2008 love bridge was built on the initiative of Marijampolė municipality. The bridge is in Poetry Park. It is decorated with municipality’s coat of arms and inscribed with words „Love celebrates youth“ by Sextus Propertius.
In 2010 this object was considered one of three candidates for city’s symbol. After the reconstruction of poetry Park almost all of the bridges were changed in design, only the previous image of Love Bridges is saved.
The bridge became an attraction for recently married couples. It is customary for newlyweds to hang heart shaped locks on the bridge which symbolize an eternal love.
