  • One of the rare places worth visiting in the city of Pristina. The city in General is very standard. The Ottoman period mosques remain visible. 1. Mohammed's Tomb and take more time to prizen. I'm telling you.

  • It's a beautiful mosque. The Ottoman-era. Grandfathers heirloom. We were unable to get inside were closed, but even the garden was very nice. Brasses processing was really nice dome. Tika has restored. Even the weather was so nice to breathe.
