Bayraklee Mosque is a religious building located in Belgrade, the main city in Serbia. It is, where the Muslim community meet, but pitifully the place is a bit degraded. It is interesting to come here and see an historical building, due during a lot of years here there were Ottomans. This is a stone building, which now is used for religious purposes.

The Bajrakli Mosque was built around 1575, and is the only mosque in Belgrade that had existed during the time of the Ottoman period. A glimpse of the building would suggest that it is typical of mosques built in the Ottoman style. The building has a square plan and is topped with a dome resting on a hexagonal shaped rotunda. The look inside seems to indicate that the rotunda is not the traditional circle. Also noteworthy is the mihrab, which has a honeycomb vault to decorate the upper section. The middle also has a traditional upper balcony for women. The caretaker was okay with me going up to the balcony. It's reachable via a spiral staircase and it's worth a walk up just because it's unusual to be able to get a top down view of a mosque. Worth a quick stop if you’re in the Dorćol neighbourhood.

Built in 1575, this is th eonly Mosque in Belgrade.
In Turkish Bajrakli means "with flag". It is located in city quarter called Dorćol, near Kalemegdan park and fortress. Mosque was damaged in 2004 during the protests but is was later repaired. During the Muslim holidays, on the street you can taste beutiful sweets and food.

I've seen a lot of mosques and minarets in the world so far, and this one doesn't lag at all in its construction and architectural design, compared to the others. Today I went to see this muslim sacral edifice in Gospodar Jevremova street, in Dorcol, the old part of Belgrade.
It is called after the turkish word, bayrak, which means the "flag" or bayrakli, that means "with flag".
It was built around 1575, and now is the only remained mosque in Belgrade, out of former more than 60 mosques, that existed in town.
Before, the mosque was surrounded mostly by the ground floor houses
in the commercial and craft town district of Belgrade.
Now there is a completely modern and urban area around the mosque.
As to the construction, it is of type of one- storey cubic building with a dome and minaret. The building is mainly of the stone, with some segments of the bricks and stone.Minaret is a thin tower with conical roof and has one circular terrace at the top. From this place, the faithful are called to the prayer by the muezzin(islam priest).
In the interior of the mosque, opposite to the entrance, there is a most sacred space - the mihrab. The mihrab is, in fact, the shallow niche set in the direction of the holy city of Mecca.
Interior decoration of the mosque is not so rich as I saw in the other mosques in the world, but still there are some inscriptions on arabic, from the holy book Koran.
In the whole, worth of visit.

Bajrakli mosque was built around 1575 as one of the 273 mosques and masjids (special Islamic places of worship), how many were in the Ottoman era was in Belgrade (Evliya Çelebi) [1]. Originally called Čohadži-mosque, after benefactors, dealer baize, Hajji Ali. Bajrakli mosque is a single building with a dome and minaret. During Austrian rule (1717-1739) was converted to the Catholic Church (demolished when the largest number of mosques in Belgrade). Upon returning to the Turks, again a mosque. Hussein Bey, ćehaja (assistant) Turkish chief commander Ali-pasha, renewed the worship in 1741, and for a time was called Hussein Bey or ćehaja Hussein Mosque. At the end of the 18th century has been called the Bajrakli mosque, after the flag upon which it stood out as a sign for simultaneous beginning of prayers in all mosques. After the restoration of the 19th century, they took Serbian princes, became the main city mosque.

It is a good place to pray for muslim travellers. I had chance to visit and pray during my visit to old city. Not so far away from kalemegdan but good to check over map before you go.
