1000 LJUBLJANA

TRIPLE BRIDGE (TROMOSTOVJE,) LJUBLJANA; The Triple Bridge is a unique feature of Ljubljana's architecture. Jože Plečnik redesigned Ljubljana's oldest stone bridge, adding two side bridges to create the Triple Bridge, which forms an ‘open' gateway to the Old Town.


The Triple Bridge lays in the heart of the city in the center flow of the main streets of the left and right bank of the Ljubljanica river and the axle of Park Tivoli which was also partially decorated by Plečnik at the same time (1929-1934). The bridge is made out of three separate bridges. Two of them are used by pedestrians and the middle one is intended for vehicles and is a connection between the central city square with the Franciscan church and the City Hall (Gregor Maček, 1728). The side view revealing the stairs descending to a lower terrace resembles a Venecian bridge, but the design is Plečnik's original idea.
