The Hussein-paša mosque is located in the centre of Pljevlja. The mosque’s minaret is 42 metres high. This masterpiece of Islamic culture in the Balkans was built at the end of the 16th century, courtesy of Hussein-paša Boljanić, who was born in the village Boljanić, near Pljevlja. Prior to settling in Pljevlja, Hussein-paša performed a number of important duties at the court in Constantinople.
The mosque was built from finely hewn stone, with rich internal ornaments, while the walls are painted with floral details and a quotation from the Koran.
