Mostar is fascinating in that Mosques and churches often sit cheek by jowl and when one looks at the recent history of conflict one can't but be impressed at how hard some people of Mostar are working at tolerance and unity. One of the must see attractions of Mostar is to climb the minaret of the Koskin-Mehmed Pasha's Mosque. this... More

I came here on 17th November 2015, the very end of the tourist season and had the place to myself. A lovely place to visit with a very interesting interior, lovely courtyard and river side position with a view to the bridge. Really worth while.

This is a very liberal Mosque which you are encouraged to visit, in a liberal Muslim society. No need to remove your shoes, but better if you did, and remember to step over the threshold with your right foot leading

This is a lovely mosque, beautifully decorated on the inside. We also climbed the minaret for spectacular views over Mostar. Down below it also has the best views of the river and bridge you can find.

In this mosque, you are allowed to go up to the minaret. If you go to mostae city, dont come back without doing this. From the minaret, you will see the great view of the city and the famous mostar bridge.

As non-Muslims are not generally allowed in mosques, this was an excellent opportunity to go inside and see all the rich tradition and history that makes up Islam.There is a water fountain in the courtyard for filling water bottles or washing hands and feet.

We did take many great pictures of the bridge and landscape and can recommend the 2.5 Euro per person for this. We wish the gentleman collecting the money could have been more engaging, because there is a lot of history at the mosque, courtyard and bridge which is not explained. He seemed to be more interested in hanging out with... More

We didn't have an opportunity to spend much time at the mosque and arrived before it closed. The mosque is very small and mediocre. I guess I was expecting more but this is probably a reflection of the city and the country's economy.

Going on top of the minaret will give you the best views of Mostar, well worth the money. The interior is interesting but not much different to Mostar's many other mosques.

The view is good from here but that's not the best reason to come. It's a small mosque but well restored and the paintings on the interior of the fruit trees local to the area are interesting and if not unique certainly unusual in a mosque I think. The courtyard is a peaceful respite also.
