Odd bridge

The central element in touristy Ljubljana is this triple bridge. The central part is the original bridge, built in 1842 and designed by an Italian architect. In 1929, Joze Plecnik, trying to eliminate congestion in traffic, planned, and built, ending in 1932, two side narrow bridges for pedestrians.

Nowadays all the area is closed to traffic almost all day, and the two extra bridges seem... unjustified, but no one goes to the city without a picture of or on the bridge.

Triple Bridge

Three Bridges are probably the most beautiful and well known of all bridges in the city, they connect the main Preseren Square with the Old Town and represent a popular meeting point and place for street musicians and artists. The Marketplace is on the left, the Old Town is on the right, the main square is behind

Tromostovje and Ljubljanica.

No one can write or talk about Ljubljana without mentioning the Triple Bridge, Tromostovje in Slovene. It was extended in 1931 by the architect Joze Plecnik when he added the two sides to the already existing bridge. It is now a pedestrians bridge only.

The other pictures just shows the surroundings of river Ljubljanica.

Triple Bridges

I'm sure everyone who visits here writes about these famous bridges but anyway here's my two cents worth . They really are unique . I don't know if the intention of the arcitect was to create such a unique structure or if it was out of a more practical nature. The two side bridges were actually add ons in 1931. Its a very pretty pictureesque city!!

Triple Bridge

Originally there existed just one central bridge (1842) crossing the river at this point but it was decided that the single bridge could not handle all the traffic so knocking the bridge was considered in order to build a bigger one. However, Plecnik, Ljubljana's favourite architect came up with a unique idea and suggested to just add two more pedestrian bridges on either side of the original bridge. Of course, all three bridges are now pedestrain bridges but the side bridges are referred to as the pedestrian bridges and both have stone stairways which lead to waterside terraces. The Triple Bridge is one of Ljubljana's most famous and unique architectural treasures.

The landmark of Ljubljana

The oldest of the three, the central bridge was built in 1842 as a replacment of an old wooden bridge. Almost the century later others were added to form todays arhitectualy well known bridge. The famous architect Joze Plecnik is "responsible" for today's appearance of the bridge.

Triple Bridge

This attractive and famous bridge gets its name because of the three seperate pathways (2 pedestrian, 1 transport) that make up the bridge. Originally it was a double bridge but another was added in 1931 by Joze Plecnik

Double, er, Triple your pleasure....

The Triple Bridges are a very memorable part of Old Ljubljana, precisely because it seems so redundant to have three separate bridges connecting the same places. Why not just one massive one? Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything on the history of these bridges or the explanation for why there are three of them, so I was simply content with taking a few perspective shots of them on a beautiful June morning.

Triple bridge

It's not even possible to visit the capital city and not traverse the triple bridge at some point, it's smack dab in the heart of the city, near Preseren Square.

The first part of the bridge dates to 1842, the two pedestrian walkways were added in 1929 by Ljubljana architect Joze Plecnik to make it safer for pedestrians to walk through old town. The biggest threat these days seems to be from bicycle traffic as there aren't a lot of cars passing through this section of town.

I've seen some really cool photographs of it that look like they are taken from above, maybe if you are staying at the Grand Union you'd have a nice shot or maybe they have access to buildings around the square.
