The Bajrakli Mosque (Albanian: Bajrakli Xhamia / Çarshi Xhamia; Bosnian: Bajrakli džamija; Serbian: Бајракли џамија) is the main mosque situated in the center of the Bazaar of Peć. It was built in 1471 by Sultan Fatih Mehmet Hani and is an Ottoman-style single-domed mosque with the oldest and highest dome in the city. The mosque was burned down once during 1943 by Italian forces when the Bazaar of Peć was completely burned down, but was refurbished and was unperturbed during the 1999 War in Kosovo.[1]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states. 10 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
