Triumph Arch, Bucharest
(1.7/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • In Bucharest as in France lo Mismo arch. .. Nice to look at but apart from the fact that more nnt lies at the Centre of a roundabout and certainly not reason to make us squeeze by cars.

  • It is very similar, but you can not climb. It is an arch over the victory of the first world war. It was originally made of wood. It is close to the airport departing a bit from the center of the city.

  • It won't be like that in Paris, there will be the champs elysees under, but it's still a symbol of Bucharest. Who doesn't think so, we have to go to see the city! Aviatilor, stop walking and see both the arc that the herastrau Park.
