Shoemaker's Bridge (Cevljarski Most), also known as Cobblers' Bridge, dates from the 13th century and is one of the oldest bridges over the Ljubljanica River. In the Middle Ages, shoemakers took over the original wooden structure from the butchers, who had to relocate their shops due to the stench of raw meat. That wooden bridge was reconstructed many times after floods and fires before a sturdier stone bridge was erected in 1931. Six pairs of pillars, originally intended to support a cover, rise above the balustrades. Notice the two candelabras in the middle of the bridge. Watch for street vendors and performance artists who sometimes occupy the bridge.
