What: Mosque
Where: Serbia, Pljevlja
When: Late Middle Ages

This mosque, one of the most beautiful mosques in South-Eastern Europe, was built in the end of the 16th century with a donation from Hussein Pasha Boljanic. Born in a small village near Pljevlja, Hussein Pasha held a senior official position in Constantinople. The mihrab (niche for prayers), mimber (high pulpit) and mahfil (women’s gallery) are particularly richly decorated. The mosque has several old manuscripts and printed books. The pride of its collection is a manuscript of the Koran believed to be from the 16th century.
