Even if the mosque is small it is a gem. The outside part looks good and is well kept. The inside part is quite small, but totally worth the small entrance fee ( 5 RON / 2 RON for students) just to climb the stairs up the minaret. The view of the sea and of the houses in the old,... More

We visited the mosque of Constanta and climbed to the 140 steps to the top of the minaret and were very impressed with everything we saw and experienced. The view at the top gives a totally different perspective of Constanta that is worth seeing.

Beautiful integration of Neo Egyptian, Neo Romanian and Neo Byzantium architecture. It is the seat of the Mufti who is the spiritual leader of 55,000 Muslims. It has one of the largest Persian carpets in Europe weighing in at 1,080 lbs. Worth a visit especially timed for call to prayer.

There is a charge to go inside. When you enter you are able to walk around and do a self walking tour to learn about the history of the Mosque.

Nice experience and the most important thing is that you get a nice panorama over the old city of Constanta, the harbor and a large part of the rest of the city. Worth the time if you are around

I'v been recently to visit the mosque. It's in the peninsular quarter of Constanta 2 min close to Piata Ovidiu. It's a beautiful islamic influence landmark of the city, and the view from the tower (minaret) it's breathtaking. Alos, to acces the tower you have to take the stairs (which is quite an effort).

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
