Travel 500 years through time and let yourself be captured by the historical Carska Dzamija.

Carska-Dzamija-kleinThe Emperor’s Mosque (Carska Djamija) is the first mosque to be built in Montenegro. It is presumed that it was first built in 1471 as Asker Mosque (Asker = Soldier) for turkish soldiers.

Beside the Emperors Mosque, that looks like a fortress out of the middle ages and was built by Beg (osmanic= Duke) Zejnel Dizdar, there are houses that the turkish soldiers slept in and stored their weapons.

There is also a library and reading room in the Mosque that dates back 500 years and is the oldest library in the area. Over the years not much of the original mosque survived and in the 18th century it was rebuilt in keeping with the original construction.

In the 1980s it was once more renovated and since then is under national heritage protection.
