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
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!
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.
One of the most beautiful mosques in Europe and a perfect example of the Ottoman style of architecture. The entire complex irradiates peace and serenity, you don't have to be a religious person to feel the atmosphere. We were lucky enough to enjoy a private explanation by courtesy of a wonderful local guide. I recommend to plan your visit to hear the call of the muezzin from the minaret, it's very special.
Grand, newly renovated, and very much visited. It closed for tourists at praying times.
Quite good and historical place. But I didn't understand why they are asking money to enter it's still worship place not museum
