This wide pedestrian bridge is named for the Cobblers shops that once existed on the bridge. Many bridges have existed at this location since the 13th century, but the present bridge is from the 1930s. The bridge has a Neoclassical design with Corinthian pillars projecting from the balustrades. Ionic pillars serve as lamp-bearers on the supporting arches. A cute bridge that looks like it's floating on the river. It also has a clear view of Ljubljana Castle.

Another nice bridge in the center of Ljubljana's old town.
A beautiful bridge with a rich history.
At night, the bridge is even more beautiful.
If you are traveling in the old town of Ljubljana, stop at this bridge for a few minutes of impression and photography.

There is obviously a history to the name due to the cobblers shops that used to exist on a bridge that was previously here. This bridge lives on that name and reputation but is not very touristy. Its not an architectural marvel nor visual very attractive. More just a bridge over the Ljubjanica canal. Not a must visit attraction.

It is one of the many bridges in Old Town. It's best seen on a canal boat ride but it's nothing to go out of the way to see.

If you start on a trip down the Dragon Bridge, after 5 minutes you will discover the Butcher's Bridge, then, after another 5 minutes, the Triple Bridge. Do not stop! After another 6-7 minutes you will find another beautiful bridge - The Shoemakers’Bridge.

Shoemaker's Bridge in Ljubljana, Slovenia is name because of the proximity of several local shoemakers.

Easy to locate.

The present 1932 bridge was built by a famous architect (Plecnik) and it is easily recognized by its very tall columns topped with concrete balls. It is a popular gathering point spanning the river but the history is more interesting than the structure.

Since the 1200's, there has always been a bridge here in some shape or form or material, and its earliest use was as a stinky, smelly butcher's bridge. An Emperor's decree moved that use elsewhere and shoemaker's moved in, thus its current name.

This was a tax-free zone and up to 16 shoemakers set up business there.

It also was the place where punishment was meted out to bakers who short-changed customers by selling them bread weighing less than advertised. The offenders were caged, dunked in the filthy water (full of the offal and butchery by-products), and the public could witness justice being done. Our tour guide shared that bit of his town's history with us.

Small bridge, like most parts of the river Ljubljanica embankment is designed by reknown Jože Plečnik. It offers one of the best views of the river and its surroundings.

We walked past the Cobblers Bridge (or Shoemaker's Bridge) on two different days without realising its fame, this being a bridge designed by Joze Plecnik.

Perhaps we were distracted by the market stalls of the Christmas Market, the lively crowd and the colourful lightings.

From the Cobblers Bridge we had a good view of the Ljubljanica River and the old buildings along the riverbank. We could also see the castle towering above the old square.

The Shoemaker's Bridge also called the Cobbler's Bridge is considered to bethe oldest bridge of medieval Ljubljana. In Medieval times it was a wooden bridge, which was likely to also fulfill the functions of a drawbridge and was built in the 13th century. As shoemakers had their workshops by the bridge, it got the popular name the Shoemaker's or Cobbler's Bridge. In 1867 the wooden bridge was replaced by one of cast-iron. Later this was replaced by the current structure. There are nearby cafes and also you can access the river tours nearby. Not nearly as exciting a name as the Dragon Bridge further down the river but it gives a great view of the river.
