Die Gazi-Husrev-Beg-Moschee (bosnisch Husrev-begova džamija, türkisch Gazi Hüsrev Bey Camii), verkürzt auch Begova-Moschee (Begova džamija) von 1530/31 (Bauinschrift) in Sarajevo ist die größte und eine der ältesten Moscheen Bosnien und Herzegowinas.
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.
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
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.
Gazi Husrev Bey’s Mosque, or Bey’s Mosque, as it is known locally, was built in the center of Baščaršija in 1530. Bey’s Mosque was designed by Adžem Esir Ali, a Persian from Tabriz, who was the chief architect in the Ottoman Empire at that time. The mosque was built as part of a vakuf (endowment) established by the Ottoman Governor, Gazi Husrev Bey, who governed Bosnia, more or less continuously, from 1521 until his death in 1541. Today, this mosque is rightly seen as the most important architectural monument from the time of Ottoman rule in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are many Bosnian leaders buried in the mosque’s courtyard, including Reis-ul-Ulema, Mehmed Džemaludin Čaušević; the politician, Dr. Mehmed Spaho; the reformer, Ali Bey Firdus; the poet, Safvet Bey Bašagić....
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!
