This is a remaining trace of Ottoman rule in Dobruja. It was built in 1910 but includes a 200 year old carpet inside. It stands out as unusual in a largely Christian country.

The building is very nice, the only problem was that it was closed and, we could see that visiters are charged for visiting (unusual for a place of worship).

I am living in a muslim country and I have been in many mosques . Many people are coming here by curiosity because they never been before in a mosque . The panorama is very nice and you can see the sea and the old side of the town .

This was my first time ever in a mosque. I was very curious what lies behind the was of a mosque. It was very plain and not at all fancy like Christian and Catholic Churches. We had the pours opportunity to climb up the minaret. It provided a great view of the city. The price was reasonable.

If you wanna see Constanta from high above, this is the place. In the summer time, you can see far away on the sea! From above, you can also notice the old architecture from the Old Town Square!

The mosque itself is nothing special, but you definitely need to make the effort to climb to the top of the minaret. The views were spectacular and you could get a 360 degree view. Definitely worth the effort.

The mosque is well maintained compared to the nearby Roman edifice with mosaic. It reflects the cohabiting over many centuries of turcs and tatars with local romanian folk. The 140 steps climb to the top of the tower is worth as it offers great views of the city, the old town, the port, and the Black Sea. Jovial one person... More

One can't help noticing a towering Minaret along the old city of Constanta where the Muslim Mosque is located. Many went in and up to the towering sphere and see the view of the city. This is one of the points of interest in Constanta, Romania.

Inside it was nothing to write home about, yet climbing to the top of the minaret was all worth it! The view of the old town the sea and the port was beautiful.
