Gazi Husrev Bey's Complex

Gazi Husrev Bey’s Mosque, located in the heart of Sarajevo’s Baščaršija district, is a masterpiece of Ottoman architecture and a testament to the city’s rich cultural heritage.

Gazi Husrev Bey’s Bezistan (bazar) and Han (stone inn)

Gazi Husrev Bey’s bezistan (bazar or covered marketplace) is only one of the preserved bezistans in Sarajevo, which still serves its purpose – trade. There are also the remains of a building called a han. Han was a kind of hotel, actually a free hotel where travelers could spend one night and get one free meal and then continue their journey in the morning.
