Very hard to find useful info on access conditions and of course it was closed when we were in town. Looks ok from outside. Osman Pasvantoglu was not a good guy, to put some context .

We stopped at the mosque for a short talk. The mosque is old and, according to the immam, only caters to about 45 families in Vidin. IF you are muslim, it is a good stop.

We stopped here as there was a tour group in having a discussion with the Inman. Active mosque a bit run down but still worth having questions answered.

This rather rundown building is an active mosque in the city of Vidin. Worth a visit but only because of the general lack of attractions in Vidin.

Try to take a stroll in the old part of Vidin. The complex of Osman Pazvantoglu is in the middle of the neighborhood. I recommend to see the top of the minaret. During his reign in 18th-19th century Vidin became a modernized town.
