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 the front door are welcoming, and simply ask that you remove your shoes inside the porch before entering the main hall.

There is not a lot to "see" inside, in the sense that unlike most other mosques that are open to the public there is no exhibition on Islam or similar topics. Instead, it is a fairly pleasant quiet space, where one is free to roam and explore the hall, as long as one is quiet and respectful. It really is worth a quick visit, for this reason.

This mosque is in the pedestrian street of Plovdiv, near old greek theater. You cann't miss it walking through the center of Plovdiv.

This huge and ancient mosque is open outside prayer times and Fridays. Inside, the mosque is painted with beautiful designs, and a large, airy space of calm and contemplation. Bulgarians speak of being "liberated" from the Ottomans, but the Ottomans left some beautiful buildings and there is a significant Turkish and Muslim population in the country to ensure they are well looked after and used as part of the community.

Except on a Friday it can be visited any other day. It is old and the interior is worth a look. Remember to look up at the roof!
