The Stone Bridge (Macedonian: Камен мост (help·info)) is a bridge across the Vardar River in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. The bridge is considered a symbol of Skopje and is the main element of the coat of arms of the city, which in turn is incorporated in the city’s flag.1 The Stone Bridge connects Macedonia Square, in the center of Skopje, to the Old Bazaar.2 The bridge is also less frequently known as the Dušan Bridge after Stephen Uroš IV Dušan of Serbia.
The Stone Bridge is built of solid stone blocks and is supported by firm columns that are connected with 12 semicircular arcs. The bridge is 214 m (702 ft) long and 6 m (20 ft) wide. The guardhouse has recently been reconstructed.
