Kasim Pasha Mosque

The Kasim Pasha Mosque was built in Tvrđa during the Ottoman rule. Osijek was then inhabited by the Muslim population, mainly Turkish immigrants and newcomers, and the parent population which converted to Islam. The overall development of the city of Osijek was enhanced by the construction of the wooden bridge connected to other cities. This resulted in Turkish immigration and the spread of Islam and oriental culture and lifestyle, so, naturally, numerous mosques were built in the area. Apart from the Kasim Pasha Mosque which was located in front of the church of St. Michael the Archangel, there was also a Sulejman – han Mosque. Today, on the site of the Kasim – Pasha Mosque there are yellow bricks marking the foundations of the demolished mosque.
