The greater extent of Alipašina runs south to north, from Maršala Tita to Koševo Stadium, where it veers west toward Kobilja Glava.
The street was laid out in stages and a path that had run along Koševski Potok since olden times formed the main part of Alipašina.
During the Ottoman period, Dereboj (Turkish=along the stream) St. ran up to Ključka St. and included Danijela Ozme St.
Koševski Potok was regulated and covered during the Austro-Hungarian period and was widened up to Ciglane and named Uz Koševo St.
During the period of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the beginning section was called Alipašina and the rest was named after Hajji Sava Kosanović, the Metropolitan of Dabar-Bosna.
The entire street became Moskovska (autumn of 1947), then it was called Đure Pucara (1952), Đure Đakovića (1954) and the Ciglane-Kobilja Glava section was widened (1953-1955).
The name, Alipašina, was restored in 1994, in honor of Hadim Ali Pasha, an Ottoman general whose endowment funded the construction of Alipaša’s Mosque, a real pearl of Ottoman architecture.
