Koski Mehmed Pasha Mosque | Koski Mehmed-pašina džamija | Mostar

…best views in all of Mostar…


Prepare to be amazed by the mesmerizing Koski Mehmed Paša Mosque, which instantly captures your attention as you gaze upon it from the iconic Old Bridge.


Situated just a short distance away, on the eastern side of Mostar‘s oldest district, this mosque holds a significant place in history and exudes a distinct charm.

Originally constructed in 1618 by Mehmed Koski, the mosque bears his name and stands as a testament to his legacy. However, during the turbulent events of the 1993 war, the minaret suffered destruction, and both the courtyard and dome were damaged. Fortunately, dedicated restoration efforts have brought the minaret back to its former glory, now offering one of the most breathtaking views of the Old Bridge.


You can ascend the minaret and immerse yourself in a panoramic spectacle as well as explore the mosque’s interior. Keep in mind that ascending to the top entails navigating 90 narrow and occasionally slippery steps within the dimly lit minaret. We recommend caution for those who are claustrophobic or afraid of heights.


Once you reach the pinnacle, you will be rewarded with a truly awe-inspiring 360-degree vista. The effort and courage required to conquer the ascent will be richly rewarded as you feast your eyes on the magnificent Old Bridge and the stunning surroundings of Mostar.

What further distinguishes this mosque is the precious gift of a carpet bestowed upon it by the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph I.


As you enter the mosque, you’ll have the privilege of witnessing the original colors and wall decorations that have been lovingly preserved, further enhancing its unique allure.
