Triumph Arch, Bucharest

3.4
Originally built to mark Romania's independence, Triumph Arch is designed after the Parisian Arc de Triomphe and celebrates Classicism. The existing 27 m (89 ft) high arch was raised in 1935 at the site of two earlier, temporary arches--one made of wood in 1878 and the other erected after World War I. Notice the bas-reliefs, stone carvings, and medallions on the facade of the monument. The decorations include royal crowns and the representations of Queen Mary and King Ferdinand. Climb the interior staircase to the top terrace and take in panoramic views of the city. Put Triumph Arch into our Bucharest day trip app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bucharest.

  • It's not something to write home about, nothing special. Only if you visit Harastrau Park and the Village Museum nearby, you may take some photos with the Arch in the backround. Just that, dont waste ...  more »
  • A central point in Bucharest. The arch was recently completely restored. Unfortunately, bow there is always traffic chaos to triumph. A beautiful park, is close to the is to the stay is worth. (for adults and children is something) Of this gets you to other major attractions in Bucharest... the city on foot discover...

  • Unfortunately, like everywhere in Bucharest is a tourist attraction in the middle of a traffic chaos. Multi-track roundabout outdoor rum, but here are a nice Park. Itself but very impressive and beautiful to look at.

  • Beautiful building. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star is because we were not able to go inside. According to our tour guide it has an amazing view however you can only go up on special dates.
  • Very nice.Try to go on one of the occasions when it is opened for the public (usually on the 1st of December). It has a small exihibit inside, or at least it did before the renovation, but the view of Bucharest from its top is breathtaking.
  • This is an awesome structure worth venturing to see. It's huge and watching the chaotic traffic run circles around it is an entertaining in its own way. Once you're here, you can turn around and trek through the huge park that sits to the NE of the structure.
  • This is the third arch of triumph I saw after Paris and Barcelona.. The only issue is this one is in the center of road.. So one can't see it closely from 360 degree angle.. Structure is no doubt amazing...
  • Great monument, acces denied except for 1st of december, the national day of Romania when you can even climb on top of it, not a pleasant experience tho since there are also lots of other people who try to do the same. You also have to wait alot in this area at the crosswalks.
