We docked about a mile from town and took the ships free shuttle bus to the centre of Constanta. This lovely little mosque wasn't high on my visiting agenda and we found it by chance, whilst negotiating the the construction site that is Constanta at the moment! To visit the mosque tower the charge is 3lei and although Euros are... More

The mosque is worth visiting first to see inside as a non muslim and to the climb the minaret which is something you do not often get the chance to do. The view over the port, marina, Black Sea and Square was worth the climb.

The mosque is interesting to a non-Muslim and the minaret give the best view in town. It's definitely worth the climb up the steps.

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.
