very nice spot and a perfect place to see Constanta from the high. also, going inside this mosque I felt a bit like a rebel, especially regarding recent populistic theories about Muslims. So if you want to feel like an anarchist or even only taste how it is to fight with the system, go there, pay 5 LEI and climb... More

The mosque is located on a side street off the main square in the Old Town. It is the smallest and least ornate of all the mosques I have visited, although the carpets from Turkey were lovely.

The 360 excelent view of the old town. If you visit during the night its a bit chalangeing because the stairs are narrow and the uper place is very small. But for us it was a romantic experience.

The view from the minaret is worth the five Lei, but don't expect too much from the inside of the mosque. Plus: This is the only mosque I know where you can wear what you want.

We visited during night, very narrow stairs and very small place up in tower. The I expected was not so much I was expecting. Anyway the tower it is a romantic place where you can look over old Constanta city center. Bad that they do not renovate the mosque where the water succeed to penetrate the roof..

We visited the great mosque of Constanta, and i can say that the view from the minaret of the old city. The 140 steps to get to the top of the minaret are exosting. Its strange that the have no clothing restriction for women în the mosque.
