Abstract: The Old Bridge in Mostar was restored in mid-2004. The first cracks were observed in 2007. The cracking process has been ongoing since then. This paper presents the process of cracking and comments on the vertical deflection of measurement points on the bridge since construction of the new bridge. The analysis of these phenomena has been carried out and some possible causes of their emergence have been addressed.
Keywords: Old Bridge in Mostar, cracks, vertical deflection of the stone arch, causes of the stone bridge cracking
