Photographer's Note

The Triple Bridge (Slovene: Tromostovje) is a group of three bridges across the Ljubljanica River.
In order to prevent the 1842 stone arch bridge from being a bottleneck, the architect Jože Plečnik designed in 1929 the extension of the bridge with two footbridges at a slight angle on each side of it. Construction started in 1931 and continued until spring 1932. The bridge was opened for traffic in April 1932. The bridge was renovated in 1992. Since 2007, all the three bridges have been part of the Ljubljana pedestrian-only zone.

The works of Jože Plečnik in Ljubljana – Human Centred Urban Design

The work Jože Plečnik carried in Ljubljana between World War I and World War II present an example of a human centred urban design that successively changed the identity of the city following the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when it changed from a provincial city into the symbolic capital of the people of Slovenia.

It is an exceptional case of creating public spaces, buildings and green areas according to the vision of a single architect within a limited time, the limited space of an existing city, and with relatively limited resources.

The World Heritage Committee in 2021 added this place to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
