The mosque itself is quite nice. Only a very small one, but nice detailing on the walls and lovely multicoloured rugs. It costs quite a bit to get in to (€4) but it is 100% worth it for the view you get from the top of the minaret. The best view of the bridge in the city. Definitely recommend.

The mosque is not big and you have to pay to visit it. Time pray has to be observed because you can not visit when men are praying. It is very easy to find it.

The view from the minaret is fantastic, although the walkway around the top requires a good head for heights. The attendant was very happy to walk round the mosque with me and explain the the features of the mosque - what was typical and what was unique to this mosque. This was early in the day, just as he opened,... More

This is the busiest Mosque in Mostar and the one most tourists visit. It has a wonderfully colourful interior. There are stained glass windows, carpets and a beautiful tiled niche facing mecca. The mosque is perched on the east bank of the Neretva River. The garden surrounding the mosque has a fountain and perfect views across to the bridge. Entry... More

Mehmed Pasha Mosque is the main mosque tourists visit on trips to Mostar. It has the most colourful interior but can get crowded with tour groups. It is worth paying the €4 to see the stined glass, beautiful carpets and the wonderful tiled niche which faces Mecca. Built in 1619 it is not the oldest mosque in town but is... More

Climbing the minaret of the mosque will afford you probably the best view in town of the Old Bridge/Stari Most as you can get a fantastic overview of not only the old town but also the surrounding streets and hillsides. Entrance for the mosque & minaret is €4. I've not visited a lot of other mosques so I don't really... More

The view of the Stari Most from the top of the minaret is definitely worth the climb. Not for vertigo sufferers though!

It's quite a steep entrance for this sort of thing (€4) and there's not that much going on, but the view is certainly worth it. It claims the best view of the bridge in Mostar and this is certainly true by quite a long way, but you also get stunning views of the rest of the city and surrounding mountainsides.... More

The Mosque itself was not so interesting for me, but once I have climbed to the Minaret I was pleased with most beautiful view to the Mostar, Casabah and old bridge. Pick your time without the crowd in front of the mosque, because staircase and balcony on the minaret are extremely narrow

Go up the minaret. It is a tight spiral staircase, but well worth the effort as the views are incredible. Also, be sure to take a rest afterwards on their private terrace, the view of the river and 'the' bridge are unsurpassed.
