Rebuilt after the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, this mosque is very striking and dominant-looking, especially because of its position. Some further information on board or some offered tour would be appreciated.

It's brillant piece of architecture. Unfortunately this one is brand new because of war damage so remember that you are watching rebuilt sight. Still worth to see.
