SAM 2127Sultan Esma’s Mosque

Constructed in 1750 and distinguishable by its size and oriental style, Sultan Esma’s Mosque is arguably the most valuable remains of the Ottoman period in Jajce.

It is located in the center of the town near the main street connecting the Travnik and Banja Luka gatehouses.

As the story goes, Esma Sultana fell ill and doctors could not cure her. Esma turned to astrologists who told her that she would only recover if she built three endowments. So Esma sold her jewellery to pay for the construction of the mosque and two bridges over the Vrbas River. Sadly, she did not live to see the completed mosque.

Sinan-bey’s or Okic’s mosque

sinan

 The Sinan-bey’s or Okic’s Mosque is located in the Upper quarter, directly below the walls of the Old town. This mosque was most likely built in the late 17th century by Sinan-bey Dzabic. It is nicknamed Okic’s by locals in honour of the many generations of Okics that worked there as imams.

 

 

Dizdareva ili Ženska džamija str. 7Dizdar’s or Women's mosque

Dizdar’s or Women's Mosque is located in the Upper quarter of the town, beside the Jajce citadel. It was built by Suleyman-bey Kulenovic in 1812-13 and has a rare four-sided tent-like roof. Information on the construction of the mosque was inscribed on the chronogram above the portal until 1992, when it was destroyed.

Jajce…what a pleasant surprise!

MoniaSurely you happened to visit new places using the fact that you have a friend who lives over there and that it’s a pleasure to meet. It happened to me thousands of times and still keeps happening! For the 1° of May I decided to go and see Stephanie Ploquin, a volunteer who is doing her EVS in Jajce, a small city of Bosnia. After a longer travel than expected (I waited 4 hours to cross the border) I have finally arrived at destination. The first reaction I had visiting the city was: WOW! I never imagined that there were so many things to see and visit!
