Atlas Obscura Ljubljana Mosque

The Muslim Cultural Centre of Ljubljana, completed in 2020, is home to one of the most beautifully designed modern mosques in Europe. The modern design and a thin, sharp minaret makes you think you entered a rocket launch facility.

Located in a semi-industrial area of the Slovenian capital, the mosque, which can hold up to 1,400 people, is the heart of the six-building Islamic Cultural Centre. All of the buildings are made from white concrete, combined with elements of steel, glass, and wood. Inside the mosque, a large blue dome makes a bold statement. Other features include the main prayer hall, a standalone minaret measuring 40 meters in height, an educational center, a gym, a park, and a restaurant.
