This Valentine's Day in several cities around the world huge bolt cutters were installed for cutting off the love padlocks. In accordance with its mission to find a home for the heritage of broken love relationships, the Museum of Broken Relationships from Zagreb wishes to encourage everyone who broke up to also cut off their love padlocks and set their heart free symbolically, and at the same time physically unburden the bridges and other love padlocks carriers for new happy love relationships.
The bolt cutters have been installed on the same day in Moscow, Vienna, Berlin, Hamburg, London, Antwerp, Zagreb, Drvenik (Croatian coast) and San Francisco. The broken padlocks and stories behind them will find their home in the Museum of Broken Relationships, if their owners decide to share their experience by donating the padlock via
