The old part of Ljubljana is bounded on one side by the river and on the other by a canal. This makes it effectively an "island".
The city prides itself with beautiful and architecturally interesting bridges, including the most known Triple Bridge,
the Wooden Bridge,
across the river
and the houses facing it
with some very old ones
hosting a lively cafes
under the castle hill there is the Cobbler's Bridge
mirroring itself in the river
Going further along the embankments, it is possible to walk around the "island" following the river, then the canal. It takes you to places off the tourist trail, but also gives you the opportunity to see some wildlife - Water Voles, Otters, river trout, ducks etc...
The circumfernce is about 8 km and with a few stops can be undertaken in three hours. It is completely level.
There is no official path, but the tourist map is a good enough guide.
