Mustafa Pasha's Mosque, Skopje
(4/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful mosque in Skopje. The local will be strange to watch, why there you're climbing, but can understand it:-) near the park, where guests can relax. Only has a basic problem throughout Skopje, there is no Recycle Bin, so that's why everywhere in the country is a mess. Near the mosque is the Old Bazaar.

  • Go through the old Bazaar old city or go uphill along the walls from the overpass, 2 ways to get there. Worshippers gathered and once arrived in 12:30 on Friday and was being prepared for worship. Tourists until 2 a.m. for non-admission in the evening again visited. The feeling is a simple and calm building exterior walls are decorated with white, but as the overall impression too simplified a little Curt. With gazebos and benches around a temple, was local man talking and enjoying the evening cool. Situated on high ground, so had slowly while enjoying the view.

  • 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.
