Husein Pasha Mosque

This mosque was completed in 1594 and to this day has the highest minaret of any mosque in the Balkans. It was named after Husein Pasha Boljanic, who was born not far from Pljevlja. The mosque contains a low pitched dome, an open porch with three domes, and several rich polychrome motifs on the interior. The minaret was rebuilt after a lightning strike destroyed the original in 1911.
