Ali Ghazi Pacha Mosque

Built in 1522 and sympathetically restored, the mosque is Romania's most important Muslim place of worship. It was in this region in the 13C that over 10 000 Turks led by Saru Saltuk Baba settled at the request of Byzantine emperor Michael VIII (1230-1288). To learn more about the culture of the Turks of Dobroudja, visit the little museum in the Casa Panaghia, a white house recognisable by an amphora.
