ČEVLJARSKI MOST, LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA

COOBLER'S BRIDGE (ČEVLJARSKI MOST), LJUBLJANA; Cobblers' Bridge or Shoemakers' Bridge (Slovene: Čevljarski most or Šuštarski most) is a bridge crossing the river Ljubljanica in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is one of the oldest bridges crossing the river in Ljubljana, and dates back to at least the 13th century. In the Middle Ages it was known as the Upper Bridge (Zgornji most).


It started as a wooden bridge with a butchers shop on it, but the stench from the meat was so strong that the Emperor at the time paid to have them relocated. The occupiers of their booths following this were shoemakers, and so the bridge has its present name.
