Triumph Arch, Bucharest

(1.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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 and other Bucharest attractions into our Bucharest itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It's something that is worth seeing, but not that much to do there (as you probably can guess). It definitely should be on your checklist :) 
  • No matter that it's a copy, but this monument is astonishing. I was impressed with it's size and beauty. One of must see places in the Bucharest. Near it is a great Herostou park. 
  • Commanding the arch dominates in front of the Park by the Lake but my prokalese not special interest
