Murat Pasha Mosque

Mosque in Skopje

The original mosque at this site dated to the 15th century and was one of the oldest in the Balkans, but it was ravaged by a fire that devastated the Čaršija in 1689. What you see today is an early-19th-century reconstruction; it features a distinctive, red-tipped clock tower (the clock itself has long been lost, though) and Ottoman madrasa (Islamic school) remnants.
