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

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

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.

The condition of the mosque interior is not great most likely due the region's post-war poverty. The building itself is very interesting and the grounds, which includes a cemetery and view of the Old Bridge are worth visiting.

The Mosque is not in the best condition, surprisingly, and is quite small, however entry to the building and access to the minaret is only €4.00. The 89 steps to the top of the minaret are step and will only allow one person at a time going in one direction, however the 360 degree view of Mostar, the Old Town,... More

The mosque and its surrounding buildings are very attractive. The former madrassa buildings (now gift stalls) and the water building outside the mosque are beautiful and photogenic. You can climb the tower I believe. A very enjoyable visit and highly recommended.

I, myself am a Catholic, but I love to explore other people's religions. Mosque is just perfect, you must climb on a minaret because the view is just stunning, you get the 360 degrees view on the whole Mostar (East and West part of the city), and I found it great to explore other people's religions, in this case, islam,...

Nice view, but very dangerous way to climb up. When my friend complaint that it was dangerous the guy who worked there start shouting at her. It was not very pleasant. He was shouting what she knows about it from Europe - we did not feel safe and felt as the presence of the war 20 years ago was still... More
