L stands for Ljubljana. So I guess every once in a while you`ll take a look through my eyes and see this city. Town. Whatever.
The Three bridges were constructed due to a particular follow of events. There was an earthquake in 1895 and because Ljubljana was under the government of Austria, the Austrians were paying for the rebuilding of the town. Actually the bridge, which was single at that time, didn’t suffer from the earthquake, but a scenario was made to make the Austrians believe otherwise. Thus the city of Ljubljana got money to rebuild the bridge. The funds were used to enlarge the transmission capacity of the bridge by building two extra bridges on each side of the existing one for the pedestrians. This was designed by Plecnik and is believed to be of unique construction. It`s a bit shaky, I think cause it was cold yesterday and I could not keep the camera still. Will do better next time.
