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.

  • The first structure was built in 1878, wooden, celebrating independence, so that the victorious troops could March under. Today we see the structure of 1935.

  • Mostly a drive by attraction, although one can stop, climb and see surroundings. It is centrally located and easily accessed.  more »
  • ARC trufalny has emerged for a corner and rondo around it. If I was on the "good imprezce" and carried me this is nieźlebyłbym zdziwony.

  • One of the most known historical landmarks in the city. Great panoramic view from the top of it.
  • Fantastic place, one of the best building there, just looking from the outside looks amazing if you love architecture and old building
  • Impressive architectural work even though its a replica of the Arch Of Triumph in Paris. Its a nice place to visit if you are in town.
  • A nice locality. Near Romanian Villages Museum and the beautiful Herestrau park and lake
  • Mini replica but an impressive monument Mostly inaccessible, can be seen if just passing by car or look at from across the sidewalk. But it is still a symbol and adds to the beauty of these boulevards

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
