Simple, serene

This is a fairly small yet beautiful mosque, with a wonderful setting on the river, with views of Stari Most. It's a quick tour, but worth it. Nice quiet break from tourists.

The mosque in itself is not exceptional. But the steep walk up the minaret stairway rewards visitors with an astonishing vista of the bridge, old town and surrounding hillsides.

Could not climb to the top of the minaret...got dizzy, but the mosque was serene and lovely.. They have a simple tea shop adjoining the mosque, and a place to take the best photographs of the old bridge in Mostar

This is the main city's Mosque and perhaps even the largest, located a few hundred meters after crossing the Old Bridge, and after the pedestrian area of the historic bazaar, about 10 minutes walk from the bridge. Place of worship but also prominent attraction of Mostar. Maybe you can avoid entering and admire it from the outside, a small fee... More

Come after dark and you can access the viewing area for free. Gorgeous views of the river and Stari Most await. Being your tripod and you'll be rewarded with fantastic photographs!

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
