Gazi Husrev Beg Mosque - Review
This is straight up the most important mosque in the country. Its Ottoman architectural style was very daring when first built and is even now considered one of the finest in the world. Things to note include:
- Multiple domes
- Glass and rock ornamentation
- The twice restored arabesque.
- Stalactite ornamentation under the dome.
- Polychromatic decoration and a use of natural light to create a greater sense of space.
Most of the intricacy of the interior has been lost unfortunately; during the Siege of Sarajevo, the Serbian forces deliberately damaged much of the city’s heritage.

Gazi Husrev Beg Mosque, Sarajevo Reviews
Beautiful and modest mosque that has been built by the benefactor of Sarajevo, Gazi Hüsrev Bey. It is very moving to see what a great man can achieve, and how long such good deeds survive.
One of the most recognizable landmarks of Sarajevo. Visitors shold not miss the chance to visit the interior of the mosque, regardless of their own beliefs... it is a witness of centuries long history, place of peace and calmness, take a look at the ceiling, a masterpiece!
The Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque (Bosnian: Gazi Husrev-begova Džamija, Turkish: Gazi Hüsrev Bey Camii), is a mosque in the city of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Built in the 16th century, it is the largest historical mosque in Bosnia and Herzegovina and one of the most representative Ottoman structures in the Balkans. Being the central Sarajevan mosque since the days of its construction, today it also serves as the main congregational mosque of the Islamic community of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is located in the Baščaršija neighborhood in the Stari Gradmunicipality and, being one of the main architectural monuments in the town, is regularly visited by tourists. The building of the mosque and the surrounding it's vakuf shops, hotels, hig-school... ment beginning Sarajevo's as a big city, back then. It is the spiritual center for Bosnian Muslims. Heavily demaged more times, lastly during the Serb siege of Sarajevo (1992-1996), now is completely restaurate. Must see spot
Beautiful mosque in the heart of the Sarajevo. Always open for praying which is really great and useful.
Very beautiful to pass by in the evening and witness the harmonious ambience of prayers, naturally integrated in the landscape of a busy street of shops, coffee houses etc.
