Hidden down a narrow street there's a wonder. This mosque is lovely to look at inside and out. The chance to see the city from the minaret was one we didn't want to miss. We were also privileged to hear the call to prayer from the top of the minaret while there, a sound that I find relaxing and reminiscent... More

Located just off the pedestrian Piaja Ovidiu, this mosque is a beautiful stop for its views both internal and external. The 5 Lei ticket gets you access into the central worship area along with the 147-step climb up the minaret for breathtaking views of the old city. Head wraps for women are available at the ticket counter for no fee.... More

The mosque is among the many features of the central pedestrian area of Constanta, built just over a hundred years ago, with help from King Carol. Constanta is frequently by-passed as Rumania's port city, and tourists flock to Bucharest, the capital. Having visited Bucharest a couple of years ago, we decided to remain in Constanta, and were delighted to find... More

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.
