Abstract. Transport infrastructure of large cities is impossible without the presence of the most efficient type of mass transport – the underground and the tram. There are parts, that lies in old part of the city center. Vibration of the railway track travels through the ground to the foundation of buildings adjacent to tramlines, causing high vibration and structureborne noise levels in side them. Proposed vibration isolation system can be suggested for isolation of historical monuments, located near railways or tram lines where exceedance of the mandatory vibration levels is proved by field measurements or vibration forecast.
Key words: vibration, frequency, measurement, tram lines, insulation.
