There should NEVER EVER be a charge for entering a mosque. Even 50cents is too much. Any payment can and should be optional. Also, its not a mosque if muslims can't pray in it. Its just a museum, so don't call it a mosque.

Saturday 11th June we were on a full day tour of the City of Mostar.

During our free time we were walking along the shiney well worn stoney narrow street of Mala Tepa. It was along here that we saw a noticeboard advertising this Mosque.

We walked through the archway entrance which let us into a paved courtyard. At it's centre was a hexagonal shaped stone building with six arched entrances. Inside there was a large circular stone well, with six taps around it, with a stone seat in front of each tap. Worshippers wash their hands before entering the Mosque.

Around the courtyard there a number stalls/shops selling souvenirs and other goods.

We were a bit surprised to see there was an entrance fee, Mosque and view of the Bridge was €4 per person. To visit the Mosque and it's minaret was €7.

There was no indication on the sign outside the entrance that there was an admission charge. So we decided to leave.

The most well known mosque in Mostar. It offers fantastic views of the Stari Most bridge from the minaret. Dating to 1618, this mosque was founded by Mehmed Koskija, the biographer of the Grand Vizier Lala Mehmud Sokovic. The beautiful interior of the mosque has painted wall murals and a lush carpet that was a gift from Austrian monarch Franz Joseph. With an entrance fee of 3 Euros, it is worth a look and climb to the top of the minaret!

the entrance fee is pretty pricey, 7 euros or 14 BAM (May 2022). however, the minaret is the gem here as it provides you a birds eye view of Stari Most.

be prepared to climb 89 steps of spiral stairs to the top. best down first thing in the morning when the crowd of visitors is still thin

It's a small pretty mosque in Mostar. The interior is very simple.
We went up the minar to see the views from the top and they were stupendous. Wasn't very happy about the narrow stairs but the views were woth it

I went with my friends. People at the entrance were super kind and friendly. Felt like home. View from the top was magnificent. Everyone who comes to Mostar should visit this Mosque

This was the first mosque I’ve ever seen in my life. Unfortunately, it’s no longer a place of worship, but it gives us a good idea about a mosque. The stairs are a bit claustrophobic but the view from the minaret really pays us back!

You get a decent view of the Old Bridge from their backyard but that’s about it. The mosque itself is extreme disappointing. Not worth the price of admission.

we wanted to visit. this historic mosque that was restored to its original state after the croatian army destroyed large parts of this mosque during the genocide of the slavic muslim population and their heritage.
to my awe I saw that I had to pay 6 euros per person to enter the mosque. I have never seen before that I had to pay to enter a house of god/allah. I hope someone will correct this wrong quickly.

When I went over to the mosque I was told I could climb the minaret which is definitely not normally allowed at mosques. Of course, I had to do it. The minaret is 113 feet tall, 4 1/2 feet wide and has 78 very narrow stone steps plus a wonderful view of the old Mostar bridge and the old town. The interior was pretty cool too.
