At the dawn of the First World War,while thewar was not even suspected yet,aschoolmistress 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 lovewidley 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 beauttiful Greek woman he had fallen in love with ,and therefore broke up the engagment to Nada.The legend does not say anything about his further fate,whereas, on the other hand,every inhabitant of Vrnjacka Banja spa is familiar with Nada's destiny.Owing to overwhelming sorrow she faded away day after day and finally died,young and miserable.
Upset by Nada's destiny, girls ,wishing to keep their own romances,started writing down thier names along with the names of thier lovers on padlocks that they bound to the railing of the bridge which used to be the favourite meeting place of Nada and Relja.Afterwards the keys were symbolically thrown into the river.
New wars and sufferings came up.The story fell into oblivion,and the girl's custom to "bind" thier love became uncustomary.It had been case until Desanka Maksimovic,according to the stories of old residents of Vrnjacka Banja spa,became acquainted with this tragie story.Inspired by it she wrote down one of her most beautiful love poems"A Prayer for Love":
Although we tend to forget things , this story remains to be unforgotten ; and in order to prolong it's existence the young couples kept on with the tradition of "binding" thier love and it bridge itself got the name "THE BRIDGE OF LOVE"
............................................................................................................
U osvit prvog svetskog rata,dok rat ni slutilinisu,zavoleli su se uciteljica Nada i srpski oficir Relja.Zavoleli se i jedno drugom obecali. Bila je to ljubav o kojoj su svi pricali,koja je plenila paznju svih Vrnjcana.
Ali dosao je rat sa svim uzasima koje sobom nosi.Relja odlazi u Grcku na ratiste.Odlazi da se vise nikad ne vrati,zbog prelepe Grkinje u koju se zaljubljuje te raskida zaruke sa Nadom.O njegovoj daljoj sudbini legenda ne kazuje nista,ali zato Nadinu sudbinu zna svaki Banjcanin.Zbog prevelike tuge ona svakim danom kopni i naposletku umire,mlada i nesrecna.Devojke potresene Nadinom sudbinom, u zelji da sacuvaju svoju ljubav,na katance ispisuju svoja imena i imena svojih dragana i vezuju za ogradu mosta koji je bio omiljeno sastajaliste Nade i Relje a kjluceve simbolicno bacaju u reku.
Dosli su novi ratovi i nova stradanja.Prica je bila zaboravljena a obicaj devojaka da "vezuju" svoju ljubav se izobicajio. Sve dok Desanka Maksimovic,po pricanju starih mestana,u jednoj od mnogih poseta Vrnjackoj Banji nije saznala za ovu tragicnu pricu i inspirisana njome napisala jednu od svojih najlepsih ljubavnih pesama " MOLITVA ZA LJUBAV"
Iako smo skloni zaboravu ova prica ipak nije zaboravljena; a da bi produzili njen zivot mladi parovi su nastavili tradiciju "vezivanja" svoje ljubavi,a most nazvali MOST LJUBAVI
............................................................................................................
There hanging more that 15 000 padlocks
............................................................................................................
Tamo stoje vise od 15 000 katanaca
