You pay to enter and it was worth to see how prayers were conducted in a mosque - 5 pillars of Islamic teaching and the prayer place. No photo taking inside - for whatever reason beyond my understanding.

This is another mosque about 10 minutes walk from the big one on the main square, hidden in a smaller street among other buildings. It's nicely renovated and has a lot of information on the history of the building and the dancing Dervishes!
