Serefudin’s White Mosque

Serefudin’s White Mosque has great architectural importance for the city and its surroundings. The architect of the mosque is Zlatko Ugljen. It was first built in 1477, and its current appearance is the result of a complete reconstruction carried out in 1980. The most important award came in 1983, when Zlatko Ugljen’s work received the prestigious Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Experts awarded the Serefuddin mosque for its striking appearance, creativity, and brilliance, as well as its originality and new approaches to construction. In 2007, it received another important recognition from the Hungarian Society of Architects, who evaluated the White Mosque in Visoko as one of the three best-designed sacred spaces in Europe.
