Mustafa Pasha Mosque, Skopje

4.0
#5 of 15 in Historic Sites in Skopje
Overlooking the old bazaar and surrounded by a rose garden, Mustafa Pasha Mosque serves as a significant religious monument from the Ottoman period in Macedonia. An Ottoman vizier, Mustafa Pasha, built the mosque with an open portico in 1492 (look for the inscription above the entrance). Notice the elaborate carvings on the wooden gate. The interior walls of the building are painted with gray floral motifs set against a blue background. A light green carpet and a gilded crystal chandelier hang under the giant dome. The tűrbe plated with white marble holds the grave of the Pasha and the lavishly decorated stone sarcophagus belongs to Umi, one of his daughters. Mustafa Pasha Mosque is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Skopje Edition.

  • If your near the upper part of old Town and Skopje Fortress then by all means stop and look. The laided back attitudes of the people is unbelievable. Numerous wuḍūʾ areas for worshippers.  more »

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
