The Kandija Bridge or the Old Bridge is an iron bridge in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. It connects the old city core on the left side of the Krka River with Kandija, the historical suburb of Novo Mesto, on its right side. The bridge is situated at the lower part of the Main Square. It was built in 1898 to replace the old wooden bridge from 1600, located tens of metres up the stream. The opening took place on 23 November 1898. The riveted structure bridging the Krka with a single arch is a unique structure in Slovenia. Since 1992, it has been protected as a cultural monument. It was renovated in 1977, 1996, and 2009.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kandija Bridge by using our Novo Mesto trip itinerary planning app.
Kandija Bridge reviews
Short bridge for enter the old city, above the river Krka. For car and pedestrians, but cars are allowed to go only one way.. more »
It ia just a short walk from old town- worth to do it for a great view of the river Krka. Also attractive iron construction best seen from the banks of the river. more »
The view, that's all you need. When we were here the road was being renovated, but nevertheless, the view was amazing. If you look left, you see the gorgeous town and if you look right, it looks more wild, untamed. Take a walk, 3 minutes long at max and enjoy the views.
