In the centre of town, and an architectural gem. Small and cosy. Well worth just popping into for a quiet moment or two.

The mosque is a great Ottoman piece of architecture and is accessible to the public. I wandered around in between prayer times when it was quiet and its beautiful interior I could admire without disrupting people. You can take photos and the courtyard is also a nice quiet spot to relax and enjoy the area.

A scenic view of Ottoman architecture, a masterpiece. Clearly a must-see building while visiting the old city of Prizren.

rebuilt thanks to Turkish investors, it is an interesting work by the same architect of the Istanbul Blue Mosque. In Prizren it is unmissable

If you can avoid the vendors just outside selling their knick-knacks, you will enjoy the mosque! They were very friendly, welcoming us in and being understanding that we were tourists. The interior is nicely painted. I recommend climbing into the upper loft area (apologies, but I don't know if this area has a specific name) so you can get closer... More

The mosque is very photogenic from the outside and sits right at the heart of the city. It's an active mosque so wait for a quiet period and you'll have no trouble going in. Off with your shoes and in you go. It's not very spectacular inside but the dome and Koranic inscriptions are pleasing enough. Worth a visit but... More

I liked them more than any I've seen in the tremendous mosques in Istanbul. Normally Muslims avoid representational art, but there is a painting of a mosque with four minarets in one of the corners of the ceiling and... More

A very interesting mosque, with plenty of decoration. Very relaxed to just wander around and take pictures.
