Worth a stop if you've never been to a mosque before. It's very small and in okay shape. We didn't spend very much time here, there isn't much to see.

Very interesting to visit this and also the mosque nearer the bridge and compare the different styles. (this one is much simpler) You did not need to cover up or wear headscarves for either mosque and we felt very welcome. There is an interesting old cemetary at the front of the mosque. Better to climb the minaret at the mosque... More

Karadjöz-bey mosque, seems to be the most important mosque in Mostar, and the most monumental building of sacred Islamic architecture in the region; built at mid of XVI century in Ottoman style, it’s even the biggest mosque in the region. It has been almost completely destroyed during the last war and re-built between 2002 and 2004, year in which it... More

Very beautiful and quiet, on the outside of the main tourist strip. I am a female and was welcomed in even with short sleeves and longer shorts. (I was a bit nervous about the dress code). You must leave your shoes outside. Flip flops are available if you wish to climb the minaret. The hike to the top is tight,... More

Truly impressive mosque located in the center of Mostar, I saw it walking along the pedestrian way and impossible to miss it. I did not enter in but judging the outside I could see it and certainly a top city's attraction. A minaret of about 500 years, really very impressive.

As a non-Muslim tourist this place for me was of course only a "place to visit", also I had never visited a mosque before. The guide greeted me so friendly that I felt very welcome, and he showed me his mosque with so much enthusiasm. I learned a lot from him about Islam and about the customs of Muslims. If... More

Built in 1557, this is a small but excellent example of a 16th century mosque. There is a small madrasah (Islamic school) and a small cemetery nearby. There is a 16th century hand-written copy of the Koran on display. For a fee, you can climb the minaret. Warning: not for the claustrophobic!

A very welcoming and quiet corner of town. One of the largest mosques in the area, built around 1554. It was severely damaged during World War II, and faced near destruction during the Bosnian War in the early 1990s. But, like the rest of Mostar, it was completely renovated and reopened to the public in 2004. Climbing up to the... More

Built by the acclaimed Turkish architect Mimar Sinan in 1557. This mosque is a short walk north of the bazaar on the east side of the Nerevta. The mosque is simply decorated inside with some minimal floral designs on the walls and dome. You can climb the 35m high minaret for a 360° view of the eastern part of town,... More

an angle full of charm, spirituality even if national monument and therefore besieged by the tourists. Very beautiful the panorama from the minaret.
