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,...

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.

This bridge over the canal has an interesting history - one that you will learn about if you take a walking tour with a guide. It is nothing special to look at or walk over but it does give you a good view down the canal.

Nice looking bridge over Ljubljanica, just south of the famous Tromostovje. Very nice views from here.

This bridge may not be as striking as the nearly Butcher's Bridge, and from what I understood from my guide it was never finished. But it is the work of the most important designer in Ljubljana, Joze Plecnik, who left his mark all over the city. The bridge is neoclassical in nature, lined with columns. My guide told me that...

In this very small city, everything is just within minutes. So walking around you will just walk over it and not even realise it.

Love the bridge. The view to the river is the best in the area. The area is also lively with the antique market and street busker. Some of the best restaurant and cafes in town are in this area so it's a must visit site.

Ljubljana has more than its share of bridges, but this one is near several good restaurants. Additionally, there is an interesting mural on building near the bridge that includes an image of Martin Luther King. We tried to find out the significance of the mural but had no luck.

Every Slovenian knows that bridge is work of architect Plečnik. Beside this it is nice place for meetings, for street musicians, selling books and for groups to stop when they admire Ljubljana. It is fine, wide bridge but not as interesting as Tromostovje (Three bridges). And yes, it is square above the Ljubljanica river and not just simple bridge between... More
