Džamija cara, Pristina

(4.4/5 based on 50 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.

  • Mosque in the city center. Too bad the plot and the surrounding urban environment destroyed rape. It is currently under reconstruction 
  • worth the visit the oldest masque in pristina. plus is your entrance door to the magic world of the city market, which is right next to it. 
  • A town in the Centre of Pristina's largest mosque. Xhamia e Mbretit in Albania language meaning "mosque of the King". Because it was built by the Ottoman Sultan, Mehmet II in 1461 is generally referred to as Xhamia Sulltan Mehmet Fatihi. Large overhanging high Minaret and the front portico is characteristic of a building. Inside is a simple build, beautiful Arabesque patterns on the ceilings.

  • 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
