This bridge was planned by Plecnik and originally housed butchers but because of the smells it became a haven for cobblers, hence the name! Great spot over the canal!

This is a neat bridge with lots of stonework. Worth a quick walk to and over as you look for a place for a bite and a drink.

Another look at Plecnik's work. Simple and very pretty. Good spot to relax and people watch. Not a must see, however, why not? A nice look on the canal.
