When we visited, a Muslim man entered, climbed onto the parapet and sang the prayers in a beautiful Bass voice. Nice tiles and architecture. The view from the Minaret is outstanding. Would be nice to have a pamphlet explaining the Mosque's history.

Worth the small ticket price for a glimpse of the ornate interior and a climb up the minaret to get a gorgeous view of the beach and city center.

Very interesting, and was pleased to be able to take photos. The staff were interesting and friendly and very willing to talk, and gave us the history of the place. Most interesting was that it was a Christian King who funded the original building here over a 100 years ago. Wonderful views from the top of the Minaret.

Located near the Ovidiu Plaza , it has been my key attraction point every year. Although it`s rather hard to walk all those steps,it`s definetly worth it. From there you can see the new harbor, The House with LIONS, Tomis Harbor,and Ovidiu Plaza. Almost alll of the Peninsula .or Historical Center. MUST VISIT. Make sure you enter at the ground... More

Very friendly people and great view. You enter a very different and calm world? Lots of stairs but it's all worth it.

It is not for the faint of heart to go up so many stairs! It is very narrow, one person at a time, but then the view is the prize!

Attempted a visit on our short stay here in Constanta. Couldn't find a way in?? Is Monday the day of closing in Constanta? Suspect it's no different to any oter day as most of the area around the mosque covered in dust, roadworks & pneumatic drilling

Although entry is very cheap, there is not much to see here. You can see where prayers are taken each day and climb to the top of the mosque, that's it, we were in and out in 5 mins, a bit boring to be honest, so don't go out of your way to visit
