Sinan Pasha Mosque, Prizren

4.7
#1 of 10 in Historic Sites in Kosovo
Overlooking a river with an old stone bridge, Sinan Pasha Mosque serves as an Ottoman structure that adorns the skyline of Prizren, with its large dome and a 43.5 m (143 ft) tall minaret. Built in 1615, the mosque features a somewhat uncommon shape for Islamic art, dominated by gentle features and compactness. See the interior with colorful floral patterns on the walls, low-hanging chandeliers, and verses from the Qur'an painted throughout its interior. Observe the wooden elements--many of them date back to the very beginnings of the mosque's history--and walk its original stone floors. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Prizren holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Sinan Pasha Mosque and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    This 17TH century Mosque is the most important of the city and is located in the historical centre close to your stream. Vaulted ceilings with paintings.

    Prizren Oldtown is really charming and idyllic. The Sinan Pasha Mosque was beautiful from outside with the little garden in the backyard. You should also take a look inside.

Where to stay in Prizren

Staying in the city center provides easy access to Prizren's historical sites and enables you to immerse yourself in the city's lively culture. A number of hotels and hostels alongside a handful of apartments are just a few minutes' walk from mosques and charming teahouses. Accommodations outside the center are limited. However, if you prefer lush peaks to cobbled streets, consider staying in a peaceful mountain hotel. Price-conscious travelers can find affordable rooms in Prizren, but be prepared for more basic facilities.
