Trip Planner: Europe / Republic of North Macedonia / Skopje Region / Skopje / Mustafa Pasha Mosque
Overlooking the old bazaar and surrounded by a rose garden, Mustafa Pasha Mosque serves as a significant religious monument from the Ottoman period in Macedonia. An Ottoman vizier, Mustafa Pasha, built the mosque with an open portico in 1492 (look for the inscription above the entrance). Notice the elaborate carvings on the wooden gate. The interior walls of the building are painted with gray floral motifs set against a blue background. A light green carpet and a gilded crystal chandelier hang under the giant dome. The tűrbe plated with white marble holds the grave of the Pasha and the lavishly decorated stone sarcophagus belongs to Umi, one of his daughters.

Worth a visit inside (take your shoes off and show respect). Beautifully restored interior mural designs.

Located up the hill from the Old Town, this mosque was completed in 1492. The same year as Columbus sailed to the Americas. It is not a grand mosque, but is pleasing to the eye and worth a visit...

Nicely restored ottoman mosque located up on the hills of Skopje.
You can visit the mosque inside when there is no religious practice. You have to leave your shoes at the entrance of the mosque. This is an Ottoman-era mosque located in the Old Bazaar. It was built in 1492 by Mustafa Pasha. Interesting thing that the mosque is largely intact from its original state, and no additions have been made through the years. The mosque has a beautiful rose garden and a türbe .
