First I was surprised to hear Muslim calls for prayer in the old town of Plovdiv, but with a still quite large Turkish-Muslim minority in Bulgaria this was not really a surprise and a sign of tolerance. The Djumaya (Friday) mosque is a quite large...More

Bulgaria was prominently a Christian country. Under the Ottoman rule, the most prominent church in the city couldn't be a Christian church so it was converted from a Christian cathedral into a mosque. It's a beautiful building inside and out.

It has stunning architecture and you get a positive feel when you go inside. It's a pleasant experience.

With global politics being what they are, it is increasingly important (unfortunately) for mosques to be open and welcoming to all, and this place was perfect for that. The building is old, and of an architectural style before that of the Ottomans with their central...More

This is in the centre of Plovdiv and is a must see attraction. They supply the clothing to cover yourself if you do not have appropriate clothing to enter. The caretaker put on the lights for us which we greatly appreciated.

It is hard to miss the Djumaya Mosque in Plovdiv, as it dominates the Old Town square. At a glance, it may appear closed to the public, but if one pushes through the cafe and up the stairs, visits are indeed possible. The staff on...More
