  • See said that admission fee will cost money to enter and climb to the Tower, but not... Do not open the door, walk only a few steps away. Islam, however, within the unique decoration, colorful and elaborate, beautiful.

  • The courtyard and the view from it is quite nice.The interiour is frankly disappointing with rather talentless mural decorations. We have visited many mosques and most of them are much more beautiful ...  more »
  • right smack in the Old Town, all u need is good comfortable walking shoes. visitors to the mosque must be modestly attired  more »

  • This mosque provides a great view on the Old bridge, but also an amazing ottoman architecture, especially inside. In front of it, there is ''sadrvan'', an example of the ottoman fountain.
  • Its historical place with excellent view to river and Old bridge with towers. Worth to visit and enjoy.
  • Climb the minaret if you are able to walk stairs. It's 12KM (€6) and absolutely worth it! The highlight is the view of the Stari Most, but the views of the rest of Mostar are fantastic.
  • Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque (Koski Mehmed-pašina džamija)- As you approach the #OldBridge, you will notice a mosque at an unusual spot right at the edge of river Neretva. Like most of the mosques in Bosnia, this too is an ancient structure built with typical Ottoman architecture. This mosque was built at the beginning of the 17th century by Koski Mehmed-Pasha and hence named after him. A spectacular panoramic view of the city can be enjoyed from the minaret of the mosque, at only five metres from the Neretva River. Right outside the mosque is a small step besides the stoned wall which is an ideal spot to click pictures of the Old Bridge while the same bridge gives a breath taking view of this historical mosque and the river Neretva. Pictures cannot do justice, you have to be there to feel the grandeur of these two wonderful structures.
  • The view from the top is absolutely gorgeous !
