The uniqueness of the Triple Bridge in Ljubljana

26 Mar

NO one can write or speak about Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia without mentioning the Triple Bridge. It is said, this bridge has been there since 1280, but then was rebuilt in 1657 after a fire.

Over time in 1842, this bridge was replaced with a new bridge, designed by Giovanni Picco, an Italian architect. The bridge was then called Bridge Hospital (Hospital Bridge) but the bridge was officially named in honor of Archduke Franz Karl Franz of Austria.

Stone arch bridge that is the center of the modern bridge which still survive since added pedestrian bridges on either side by architect Joze Plecnik in 1929. This makes it is called the Triple Bridge.

Triple Bridge is completed in 1932 and then set a pedestrian zone in 2008. Only certain traffic that can use the center bridge, making it effectively creates three pedestrian bridges.

Previously, the Triple Bridge are also useful as an important transit route medieval between the countries in northwestern Europe and southeastern Europe. Triple Bridge now connects Preseren Square to Old Town Square under Castle Hill.

Because the Triple Bridge is an icon that can not be released from Ljubljana, the visit to this city must be documented in the form of photos or video.
