Views from the Koski Mehmed-Pasha Mosque [Through My Lens Nr. 60]


We had some really great weather this past weekend (though it rained on Sunday) which made walking the city really enjoyable. We had friends visiting and did the obligatory walk through the Old Town of Mostar. This time we went to  the Koski Mehmed-Pasha Mosque. It really gives you the best views of the old bridge. Completed in 1618, this mosque is the second biggest in Mostar. It is placed just 150 meters north of the Old Bridge on the very edge of the river bank. That position gives an unforgettable view over the Old town from the mosque’s minaret. Here are some images for our afternoon and thank you for visiting and linking up.








Now I want to see what you have been up to. Link down below and share with the rest of us!

  17. Sehr schöne Bildern sind auf deinem Blog,heute gefällt mir besonders erste.. Ich war leider nur einmal kurz in deiner Heimat (Trn/Banja Luka/Radimilja und Mostar)auf der Durchreise. Aber es lohnt, länger zu bleiben, das sieht man an deinen Fotos.
    Viele Grüße aus Deutschland
