Arcul De Triumf - Review
The Arch you see here today was the third one built on the site. The first one was buried in a rather hurried manner to make sure Romanian troops could pass under it after winning Independence in 1878. The second structure was built after World War 1 and destroyed in 1935 so that the current structure could be built in 1936. The 27 meters high structure is now the location for National Day military parades on December 1st. King Ferdinand and Queen Marie are featured on the southern facade. Though there is a stairway that leads up to the top of the arch, it is only open occasionally. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bucharest itinerary 1 day.

Arcul De Triumf, Bucharest Reviews
In pretty good shape compared to many of the monuments in Bucharest. Modelled on the Parisian forerunner, it looks every bit as good. In the middle of a roundabout.
One of the great monuments that you can find in Bucharest. Great location, near Herastrau park, you must visit and take some awesome pics.
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 though since there are also lots of other people who try to do the same. You also have to wait a lot in this area at the crosswalks.
Yes, yes, you heard right, the Arc de Triomphe. Not only will the name ring for you familiar but also the mirror. The Arc de Triomphe of Bucharest is very reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe of Paris. It is not by chance that Bucharest is called "Paris of the East" or "Little Paris". Bucharest's Arc de Triomphe is situated on a traffic circle near Rastreau Park. This is one of the many entrance gates to the city. Like the Parisian Arc de Triomphe, it is also pleasant to arrive, to be photographed, to look and be impressed. Anyone who wants to can climb the stairs and get a panoramic view of the city. The effort is worth only in fair weather. The Arc de Triomphe of Bucharest was founded in 1878 after Romania gained independence. The original gate was poor, not durable and built entirely of wood. This gate was damaged in World War I and was rebuilt in 1922 in the shape of the present gate as a memorial and a symbol of victory for the heroism of the Romanian heroes during the First World War. The gate was built in the place of a previous gate that was destroyed during the war and since then has been an important symbol of the city. The structure of the gate rises to a height of 27 meters and is decorated with paintings of the symbols of the 40 provinces of Romania. The building has an internal staircase, allowing you to climb up and enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the city.
The arch has a height of 27 metres. It has as its foundation a 25 x 11.50 metres rectangle. The sculptures with which the facades are decorated were created by famous Romanian sculptors such as Ion Jalea and Dimitrie Paciurea.
