Photographer's Note

As many cities in Balkans, there are a lot of architecture from Ottoman period.
Alaca mosque,
This mosque has been built firstly in 1495, but destroyed in time, and Abdurrahman pasha has been restorated in 1833. This pasha was addicted to art. Inside and outside of this mosque has a lot of motif which the origin were egg and animal blood. Interesting mosque for me because it is not common to see such motifs in other mosques.
I will share some more pictures from inside as well.
