One of Ljubljana's most recognizable sights is its Triple Bridge. Featuring a three-bridge design that includes a central stone bridge from 1842 and two matching side bridges designed by Jože Plecnik in the early 1900s, this thoroughfare helps bicyclists and pedestrians cross the Ljubljanica river. By its northern entrances, visitors will find Prešeren Square and its historical attractions. Meanwhile, the southern access points sit within walking distance of the medieval Ljubljana Castle and Ljubljana Cathedral. Various shops and restaurants are also accessible from both ends.

Overall, previous visitors praised this unique bridge, describing it as beautiful and romantic. Many also said that the bridge offers terrific river and castle views, so be sure to bring your camera. When vacationers need a break from walking around the area or admiring the bridge's architecture, past travelers recommend grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant since seating on the bridge is limited.

The Triple Bridge resides in the Ljubljana Old Town neighborhood, next to the Ljubljana Tourist Information Centre. The structure can be reached on foot from other Ljubljana Old Town attractions, or travelers can hop in a Kevalir or on a bike to get to and from the bridge. There are no fees to access the bridge, and it's free to visit 24 hours a day.

#1 Ljubljana Old Town (Staro mesto)

Ljubljana's past is hard to miss in its historical city center. Home to must-see sights like Prešeren Square, the Triple Bridge and Ljubljana Castle, the Ljubljana Old Town area features a mix of Gothic, Baroque and art nouveau architecture. Throughout the neighborhood, you'll find colorful buildings, pedestrian-only thoroughfares, ample shops and charming open-air cafes that overlook the Ljubljanica river. Plus, several of Slovenian architect Jože Plecnik's most iconic structures reside in this part of town. Don't miss the Plecnik-designed Central Market, which hosts a popular food market (Open Kitchen) every Friday from mid-March through October.

Travelers rave about the Ljubljana Old Town region, saying it offers a perfect blend of old and new. Though many suggest a summer visit so you can attend the weekly food market and people-watch while sipping a coffee outdoors, others highly recommend arriving in December to enjoy the city's festive Christmas decorations and holiday markets.
