This might be one of the oldest bridges in the city, but compared with the triple bridge or dragons bridge it probably isn't as impressive. We used it on the way to the city museum, but wouldn't have gone out of our way to see it.

Cobblers’ Bridge, known also as a Shoemaker Bridge got its name from the many past shoemakers’ workshops on the bridge. Originally built in the 13 century. Got little history, cute little bridge, but not worth all this commotion. C U Around

By waking around this area you will find really good attractions from antique Yugoslavia, part of magnificent culture full of diversity and mystic dragons and gypsies. Very comfortable environment, museums, and attractive views.

This is one of the oldest bridges in Ljubljana, dating back to the 13th century, and providing great photographic opportunities. It started life as a wooden bridge, and was originally the location for butchers. However, the smell of the meat made the Emperor move the butchers downstream and out of town! Then shoemakers/cobblers took over the bridge. Back in 1867,... More

Architecturally speaking, this bridge isn't anything special, but it will allow you to admire some amazing view of this part of Ljubljana, and to take some amazing pictures.

This is the bridge with the most picturesque views of the canal. It is nice during the day bust especially nice at night during the autumn, when the yellow street lights and the golden fallen leaves mix with the reflections on the water.

I made my way to this bridge three times specifically because it's a wonderful vantage point for photographs of the canal, of the houses lining it, the castle, and of the other bridges. It's an impossibly photogenic part of Old Town. The bridge itself was built in 1932. Today, it's pedestrian bridge along with most of the walkways in Old... More

It's an OK bridge, but you will get a nice vantage point to take photos from. I wouldn't make a special trip for this bridge, but if walking past it's a stop to snap some photos.

This is another attractive pedestrian bridge connecting the old town. Good views over the river and towards the castle. A few minutes here is sufficient.
