  • Beautiful oasis in the confusion of the stalls. The water of the fountain is piled high. A place where believers and cannot stop and rest

  • A lovely view of the city of Mostar from the top of the minaret. The mosque is quite small. Nice frescoes and a warm welcome. Easy to find on the main road leading from the city to the old town.

  • This little mosque is quite simple yet pretty. The minaret though offers a beautiful look on the bridge and river. You do have to climb a lot of stairs in the narrow minaret. What else did you expect.  more »
