nice view on the top of the roof, on minaret, the biggest mosque in Romania, special atmosphere in the summer sunset, with the old part of the city and the sea coast

The impressive carpet comes from an island that sadly no longer exists, Ada Kaleh, sunk after the construction of the Iron Gates that used to be renowned for its rose oil.... More
In a sunny day it offers a wonderful view of the sea and the town.Note,there's no elevator so you have to climb on some narrow spiral stairs.
