You can hear the Hodja singing from the minaret while passing by. I was surprised when I heard it first,but it reminded me of Morocco where I used to live for 5 years. So I don't have anything against it. Religion is a matter of personal choice.

Banya Bashi at night
The area is pretty safe to walk at night,but it was not always like this. In the past it was crowded with gipsies. Now it's more common to see a couple of homeless dogs and the security guards that have been put around to make sure everything is in order.

Address: Maria Louiza Boulevard at Triyaditsa Str.
Directions: Beside the outdoor market ,next to the Tsum department store.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
