2. Capuchin Bridge

Although tiny in size, Capuchin Bridge remains a big attraction for anyone looking for photo opps in Slovenia. The stone bridge leads from a monastery and serves as a town symbol, dating back from the 14th century. It also provides a good vantage point for seeing the rest of the old town and the castle. To capture the best bridge photos, go over the footbridge crossing the river just east.
