Ljubljana and me

Glimpses,photos & experiences of a foreigner living in Slovenia, Ljubljana

The hanging of shoes. The dilemma.

P1060881aaa While you walk throw Ljubljana’s old center, you can not stop noticing, wires on which lots of paired or unpaired shoes are hanging. Most famous “wire” is located in the close vicinity of Shoemaker’s Bridge -called so due to shoemakers that had their workshops by the bridge,( Slo:Cevliarski most). You could think that is a symbol of the bridge. I did . But my Slovenian guide, told me those shoes were not there few years back,the bridge had never such tradition,till now. So, this is created specially for the funny curious tourists?  or is a new Slovenian habit,tradition as a celebration of shoes?:) I wonder how many throw their shoes up in the air.. or how long it will take me..:)

    I noticed, of course, the hanging shoes and I thought it could be a students habbit. Maybe erasmus students at the end of their period in Ljubljana want to leave a ‘gift’ to the city? 🙂
