Hussein-Shah Mosque

The Hussein-Shah Mosque was built by Hussein Shah in the middle of the 16th century. Construction began in 1553 and was completed in 1566. The mosque has been damaged several times. First during the fire of Skopje by the Habsburg army in 1689, then during the Bulgarian occupation during the Second World War, as well as during the Skopje earthquake. After that, a number of conservation efforts were undertaken, which considerably changed the appearance of the mosque.
