Biscevic Turkish House Mostar Reviews
Nice to check out Nov 22, 2011
One of three Turkish Houses located in Mostar, the Biscevic Turkish House is sometimes referred to as just the Turkish House, or Biscevic House. Not sure of the official name, but I combined both names for this review.
Located near the Karadgoz Bey Mosque, this one has the most convenient location, being nearby in the Old Town.
Not hard to find, with an outside sign pointing to it. Once you enter, you see a fountain in a courtyard, where you pay admission. Then go some steps, going through a doorway that only the staff can open. A guidebook said that shoes had to be taken off, but I did not have to. Not sure if the policy changes according to the season.
Anyway, once inside, you get to see a traditional Turkish House, with the different rooms with period furniture, like the bedroom and the living. The main highlight is the gathering room in the back, with a nice view of the river.
A nice place to get a glimpse of life from the Ottoman days, this place is worth checking out, and very nice to look at.
