The Triple Bridge (Slovene: Tromostovje, in older sources also Tromostje) is a group of three bridges across the Ljubljanica River. It connects the Ljubljana's historical, medieval, town on one bank, and the modern city of Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia, on the other.
In order to prevent the 1842 stone arch bridge from being a bottleneck, a footbridge was added to it at a slight angle on each side in 1931, according to the architect Jože Plečnik's 1929 design. Works continued until spring 1932. In 1992, the bridge was renovated and since 2007, all the three bridges have been part of the Ljubljana pedestrian-only zone.
The central bridge is partly built from Glinica limestone. Other parts are built from concrete. The balustrades with 642 balusters are made of artificial concrete. The platform is covered with granite blocks laid in 2010. Previously, it was covered with asphalt.
