The Old Town is such a small area to cover and the river winds it way through it so there are a lot of bridges and the Shoemaker's - or Cobbler's - as the locals call it is just another

Best visited with a guide from the "Free Walking Tour" as you will hear the story behind the reason for the construction of the bridge and the history and value to the earlier citizens.

A nice wide bridge with one of the best view of old Ljubljana towards Preseren square. You have to come here for great photos, no matter which part of the year. In summer and just before new year you can get lucky with different artists performing on the bridge.

This bridge isn't too far from the Triple Bridge and Presern Square. it is a reasonably interesting bridge historically. Worth a few minutes to wander from Preseren Square and the surrounding area is nice to look at, if you have half an hour to spare..

As I sit in our rental apartment looking right at the bridge, it is not really special architecturally. The views from the bridge are excellent. Just south of it on Sunday morning is a wonderful antiques market. There are nice little bars,shops and restaurants all around.

Funny Sunny unuseful shoes in Ljubljana shoemaker's bridge. August the 24th 2013. Walking family... For centuries, Ljubljana was the capital of the historical region of Carniola.Now it is the cultural, educational, economic, political and administrative centre of Slovenia, independent since 1991.Its central geographic location within Slovenia.

I like the more quite and chilled feel of this bridge. Always some nice street artists performing! Like most other Plecnik's work it is still classy after so many years.

According to my tour guide, the shoes that have been strung up near the bridge are actually not necessarily part of the bridge theme. They just showed up one day, perhaps as a prank. I think it is really cool and adds to the uniqueness of Ljubljana. Also a great spot at night for street performances and music.

Perfectly underlining the free and chilled spirit of the city. And also unique symbolism for shoemakers bridge. Just wondering what might symbolise butchers bridge :)
