The World’s First Mosque to Receive Electricity

As you saunter through the Old Town of Sarajevo, it’s nearly impossible to miss this gorgeous mosque towering above the one-story surrounding structures. Its history is as fascinating as the building is beautiful. In fact, in 1898, the mosque became the first mosque in the world to receive electricity.

The Gazi Husrev-beg Mosque was completed in the 16th century and features Ottoman architecture. To this day, the mosque remains one of the largest in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
