Gallusovo nabrezje Embankment extends along the Ljubljanica River in the old part of Ljubljana. It is a picturesque area where many famous buildings, restaurants, bars and shops are located.
This makes it very popular with many strollers. In the area of Gallusovo nabrezje Embankment there is also the Sustarski Bridge or the Shoemaker's Bridge situated, which is one of many bridges in Ljubljana. In this area the Ljubljanica River is closest to the Castle Hill and there is also the narrowest riverbed. In the area of Plecnik's Bridge, erected in 1931 and 1932, once stood a wooden bridge that connected the two main city centers in the Middle Ages, New and Town Square. Shoemakers had their workshops on the market, after which the bridge was named. The landmark of the bridge at that time was the statue of Christ on its south side, now preserved in Saint Florian's Church. In the 19th century they made a new iron bridge. The architect Joze Plecnik placed the latter opposite the maternity ward where it crossed the Ljubljanica River between Poljanska and Zaloska Road. The Cevljar Bridge is made of artificial stone. It has a special fence with simple columns and tall columns of different sizes with balls on top. The sides below are decorated with a wreath in geometric pattern. All balustrades were renovated in 1991. On the Gallusovo nabrezje Embankment there are also the Lola shop, antique shop, Gallus tea room, Antique shop, Spin Vynil shop and more. Gallusovo nabrezje Embankment gives the greatest charm to Ljubljanica River, which from Roman times until the railway in the mid 19th century was the main route for supply and trade. Plecnik decisively marked the image of Ljubljana when he arranged river banks and designed walkways with aisles along the river.
