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.

  • Midnight 24 o'clock from the airport by taxi to the Bucharest city en route to visit in Metro looks at a later date. It is beautiful is much smaller than the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

  • Located a very busy square, easy access and stunning. Good construction. The original was in wood. Very pretty

  • Un monument reprezentativ pentru România. Din nou, proasta administrare îi diminuează semnificația și frumusețea. Pentru vederea panoramica de pe monument există un proces destul de greoi, iar de multe ori nici nu poți intra. Ar fi fost frumos să existe ceva pasaj pietonal până sub el. În ultimii ani a fost mai mult acoperit de panouri decât vizibil, pentru renovări.
  • A very special attraction. Very big and imprressive. There is a nice park near the Arch. It's better to go there with the red tour bus, so you can hop off there, take good pictures and take a walk in the park. You cant go under the Arch but it's ok to be on the sidewalk in front of it.
  • Easy to get to by metro, bus or taxi and is nearby Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum, so well with the visit.
  • Stuck right in the middle of one of the busiest roundabouts in Bucharest the Arch really comes to life at night. Pop down here when it is dark and the course floodlights accompanied by the tail lights of cars makes for a great photo.
  • Very nice and impressive. Highly recommended, especially during the night as it is lighted with nice lights and looks great in photos. There is also a huge park right next to it which is worth having a walk in there.
