(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The biggest mosque in Pristina, Džamija cara, is distinguished by its 15 m (98 ft) dome and lavish arabesques on interior walls and ceilings. Built between 1460 and 1461 by orders of Sultan Mehmet the Second, the mosque was the most prominent one in the region at its time, with the largest dome at the top. Its minaret stands above the surrounding buildings. The gardens provide a calm retreat to the locals and tourists alike. Inside the mosque, see well-preserved colorful floral ornaments and a mix of minimalistic and Islamic decorative elements.

  • It's a beautiful mosque when you really recommend you to see either Pristina is one of the important.

  • Prishtina doesn't offer much from a tourist point of view. This mosque is a five minute walk from the area (a Boulevard, actually) of the Centre. It is certainly worth to spend them, those five minutes.

  • Kathy ... Eudora Welty is a city I've ever heard the smell so we recently renovated the mosque. Mystic atmosphere ...

  • Beautiful mosque. Very old, but still very much in use. Busiest day of course is Friday. No one minds if you go in if no one is praying at the time. The architecture, the rug, the chandelier are all lovely. Ladies, be sure to wrap a scarf over your head to be respectful. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Wrong naming. The correct name is: “Sulltan Mehmet Fatih" Mosque
  • Also known as "the big mosque"
  • Worth to visit
