The mosque is a must see. Gazi Husrev-Beg is the one who was the founder of most of things in Sarajevo and is considered as hero (Gazi). His body is in the mausoleum next to the mosque. The mosque itself is very beautiful from inside.

A very nice 16th-century mosque and grounds located in Sarajevo’s Old Town very near the Meeting of Cultures landmark. Also very near Sarajevo’s Jewish Museum, Catholic Cathedral and Serbian Orthodox Cathedral. A common stop for walking tours.

You can visit the Mosque during some hours of the day. In front of the mosque a lot of people are praying. So not just a touristmonument.
