Stunning view

The mosque is very preaty. But the real attraction is to take the stairs and go to the top. From there you can see the old city and admire the sea. I recomand it.

A fairly modest mosque but you do get to go up the minaret which isn't always an option. Great view from the top.

The Mosque of Constanta is one place that shouldn't be missed while visiting this old city. After you climb the round stairs, you will have a better view of Constanta, and one that will actually amaze you. Don't forget, climb to the rooftop :)

Stunning views from the top of the minaret Inside the mosque, the carpet took one lady 17 years to produce and weighs 450kg. It is impressive. We enjoyed a very interesting explanation from a young girl outside the Mosque who described the prayer time and processes and the differences as applied to males and females

A nice landmark in the centre of Constanta, Ovidiu square, on your way to the Constanta Cazino. Take care: Don't go upstairs very quickly or you will get dizzy from the spiral staircase inside and watch your head, and especially legs, while going up!! Nice panorama from the balcony. Don't miss the praying room, full of nicely coloured Oriental carpets.... More

Beautiful view of the harbour and old city center. It offers a unique perspective to the multi-cultural side of Constanta and it's history.

The view on the minaret is great. The cost a bit high though.

The Carol I Mosque, also known as the Great Mosque is special for its 47 meters minaret, from where every visitor for a symboilic fee can climb to the top and admire the city. Inside the mosque, there is also a big oriental carped, hand-made in Ada-Kaleh, whcih is more than 200 years old.

For sure the best attraction in Constanta. It has one of the oldest oriental carpets in Europe with a surface of 144 meters and weighing in at approx. 500 kg. If you visit this landmark you really have to climb the 140 steps (it is worth it) to the top of the mosque where you will be amazed by the... More
