ENG:
The Triple Bridge (Slovene: Tromostovje) is one of the symbols of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
There is mention of a wooden bridge (called the Old Bridge, Stari most) in this location from 1280, and which had to be built anew in 1657 after a fire. This was replaced in 1842 by a new bridge designed by Giovanni Picco, an Italian architect, named the Hospital Bridge (Špitalski most), officially Franz's Bridge, (Francev most) in honor of Archduke Franz Karl of Austria.
This stone arch bridge is the central part of the modern bridge. It was extended into the Triple Bridge by the 1929 design of the Slovenian architect Jože Plecnik (1872-1957), who added pedestrian bridges on either side, effectively widening the bridge and preventing it from being a bottleneck. This was completed in 1932. With the conversion of the area into a pedestrian zone in 2008, only limited traffic now uses the central bridge, effectively creating three pedestrian bridges.
Remarks: You can rent canoe at N46° 2.121', E14° 30.538. Google for Bobermarine.
SLO:
Tromostovje je eden izmed mostov v Ljubljani in eden izmed mostov, ki prečkajo reko Ljubljanico.
Položaj, kjer danes stoji Tromostovje, je bil prečkanju reke namenjen že od začetka srednjeveškega mesta.
V listini iz leta 1280 omenjajo na okljuku ležeči Stari most, ki je bil prvi most po antiki postavljen na področju Ljubljane. Zaradi povezave Mestnega trga in nasprotnega brega ter poti proti Štajerski in Gorenjski je bil most najbolj pomemben prehod čez Ljubljanico v mestu.
Leta 1657 je požar uničil Spodnji most, preimenovan zaradi Zgornjega mostu, tako da so ga zamenjali z novim, znova lesenim. Na njem so imeli prodajne barake, sredi mostu pa je ob ograji stal križ.
Leta 1842 je stari leseni most postal nevaren za uporabo, zato so na istem mestu zgradili kamniti Špitalski most (arhitekt Giovanni Picco), ki je bil uradno poimenovan Francev most, po takratnemu nadvojvodu Francu Karlu. Barake so preselili v zidan objekt v sedanji Čopovi ulici.
Zaradi velikega potresa 1895 je bila Ljubljana deležna velike denarne podpore pri obnovi mesta. Tako so odločili, da bodo povečali kapaciteto Špitalskega mostu, ki je dobro prestal potres. Toda dela so čakala na čas po prvi svetovni vojni.
Projekt povečanja Špitalskega mostu so zaupali Plečniku, ki je naredil načrt za dve zunanji brvi za pešce, nove balustrade in povezave s spodnjo teraso nad reko. Plečnik je z novimi ograjami preoblikoval stari most in nabrežje okoli mostov. Trimostje so poimenovali Tromostovje (trije mostovi).
Leta 1992 so Tromostovje temeljito obnovili.
Tromostovje je edini kraj, kjer se križata dve Plečnikovi urbanistični osi: vodna os in os Ljubljanski grad-Rožnik.
Opomba: Kanu lahko najamete na N46° 2.121', E14° 30.538. Poguglaj za Bobermarine.
