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. Mustafa Pasha Mosque is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Skopje Edition.

A stop in the adjacent garden is very pleasant and relaxing.
Interesting historic building to visit. My encounter with a member of the community went bizarrely from engagingly welcoming to suddenly stopping the conversation to twice accuse me of having alcohol on my breath (which I did not).
Simple but nice. Can also see the skyline of the capital city, worth visiting. However, women may be required to have their hair covered at least by a hat.
