" A majority Muslim city " Novi Pazar by McCoq

Novi Pazar Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 47 photos

Located in south Serbia, near Kosovo, sit among low hills where river Raska has it confluence with the Ljudska.
If you arrbe here from the north you will notice how different it seems from simlar-sized towns you could have seen before in Serbia. Out of Kosovo, it has the most pronunced Muslim atmosphere in the country. But here people is not albanian, they are Serbs who converted to Islam centuries ago. It is not just the visible backdrop of mosques, tea houses and narrow bazaar streets (Novi Pazar means New Bazaar) that define this islamic character, is also the way they carry out their daily life
In some ways this is one of the most interesting towns in Serbia.

Facade of the Hammam (Turkish Baths)

Is the only map of the town I have found. If you have a good vision and if you understand Cyrillic alphabet, maybe this map will be helpfull for you.

    Great page! I've never been in Novi Pazar and it seems to me like a whole different world comparing to the rest of Serbia!
