Shoemaker's Bridge (Cevljarski Most), Ljubljana
(3.8/5 based on 150 reviews on the web)
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.

  • I like to walk on the bridge because the view toward Preseren square lit with Christmas lights is always spectacular at night as during the day the glimpse towards the castle is perfect ... The Ljubljanica flows calm quiet rifrelttendo the lights of Christmas markets on the banks during the day reflected the weeping willows that protrude on its waters. Do note that the hand of the arch Plečnik came here since 30 years he redesigned by replacing the existing cast iron bridge that consists of a single plate supported by a single central pylon, two arches adorned with two candlesticks. As you can see in the attached photos there are protruding columns which were to serve to support a cover ever made. However this time my photographs are also unusual because I photographed from below, passing over the river by boat and is even more enchanting. If you enjoyed this review, you can read about my many other for Ljubljana and I like clicking on: is it useful?

  • from this bridge you can take very good pictures of the other bridges. This is perhaps the least flashy of the other bridges, but in the end is the Group of 5

  • Here and across the river there are many bars and stores, as well as art galleries and museums. all connected by a series of bridges with beautiful houses and monuments of inantevole Ljubljana. Everything is pedestrianized in a context of flowery ornaments and thorough cleaning of roads and the public area
