Mustafa Pasha's Mosque, Skopje

4.0
#7 of 11 in Historic Sites in Skopje
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Overlooking the old bazaar and surrounded by a rose garden, Mustafa Pasha's 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 a mosque located in the Old Bazaar of Skopje, Macedonia. It stands on a plateau above the old bazaar and is one of the most beautiful Islamic buildings in Macedonia. It was built in 1492 by Mustafa Pasha, vizier on the court of Sultan Selim I. The mosque is elegant and intact, and no additions have been made through the years. The interior is beautiful, simple, and spacious. In the turbe next to the mosque, lies the daughter of Mustafa Pasha. The mosque has a rose garden and it offers fine views over Skopje's old bazaar. A five year renovation of the mosque, funded by the Turkish government, was completed in August 2011.

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.
