    This is the largest mosque in the region with the widest dome – however, it is also considered to be one of the finest examples of muslim architecture. You can roam the grounds for free, entry to the mosque or climbing the minaret however costs some KM. Can't say if it is worth it as I haven't tried it unfortunately. The grounds itself are worth a small detour, here you can see the whole beauty of the mosque's architecture as well as a typical Sadirvan fountain. Do not forget to have a look at the neighbouring cemetery as well.
    Karadozbegova Mosque was finished in 1557. The mosque was heaviliy damaged during the war but reconstructed in the late 1990s.

    Karadoz-beg's Mosque

    This lovely mosque is located on Brace Fejica. My photo does not do it justice as it was hard to fit it all in. There were beautiful well kept graveyards around it, too. This mosque was built in 1557 by Mehmed beg - Karadoz a great legislator.

    Built nearly half a millennia ago, in 1557, the Karadozbegova Mosque is considered the finest example of Islamic architecture in the region. It's also considered to be the most beautiful mosque in Hercegovina. You can walk in the grounds for free, enter the mosque for 3KM and climb the minaret for 5KM.

    This is the most famous mosque in Mostar. It dates back to the 1500's. We thought it was quite a beautiful and peaceful area to sspend some time. Although it is plainly decorated , as it was heavily damage during the war it is still quite beautiful. It has stone walls everywhere and a courtyard with a fountain. There is a simple chandelier in the domed area.

    This is a gorgeous mosaque with a fountain outside. There are taps the base of the fountain and people washed their hands s, feet and face before praying .We only learned their use after our visit and hope we weren't direspectful when we cooled our faces with the water. Others seemed to think this was the purpose of the water too.
