Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque, Sarajevo

4.6
An important Ottoman structure in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque represents the first mosque in the world to receive electricity in 1898. Built in 1532 by one of Turkey's prominent architects, the site still serves as one of the favorite meeting spots for local Muslims. Heavily damaged during the war in the 1990s, the mosque has been reconstructed, however with less decoration than before. See its stalactite ornaments below the 13 m (43 ft) wide dome and view the fountain in the yard that's still in use. Observe the differences in the colors of the interior as light streams through 51 windows along the carpet and highlights the Islamic art. Put Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sarajevo trip builder site.

  • Historical, beautiful, mesmerizing. I would suggest a visit on Thursday evenings between evening and night prayers. Beautiful mosque and courtyard.
  • Nice Mosque but small. The local people at this place not friendly. But this place have a nice view.
