Built to the honour of the Romanian soldiers who died in World War 1 the Arch of Triumph was built by the Romanian architect Petre Antonescu as a szmbol of the great victory of the glorious Romanian army in World War 1.

We walked some four of five miles to visit this sight only to find it boarded off and cloaked in curtains with pictures of what it should be. I hesitate to guess when the renovation will be completed and advise you to ask locally before travelling to its location.

The building itself is really impressive , but it's in restaurations for several years.Sadly you cant see it, just a massive canvas that covers it.

Majestic construction in a beautiful place. Unfortunately there was some road construction happening in the area causing a lot of traffic. I suggest to walk there to avoid traffic.

Magnificent structure, really show's how proud the Romanians are of their city and country. The traffic circle surrounding it can be a bit daunting, but worth it. Right next door is the Village Museum, and a massive park with walking trails, food vendors, and a lake. On the other side are some great restaurants. A short walk takes you to... More

Unfortunately this Romanian replica of the original Arch of Triumph (in Paris) is under restoration for more than two years and it's completely covered by an enormous canvas which portrays the Arch. Not really worth seeing. What a pity.

We saw it twice, both times through the windscreen of a car in a stream of thundering traffic. It obviously wasn't supposed to be seen like that. Isn't there a quiet, contemplative bench to view it from ?

Since Bucharest is also known as "Little Paris", it's not surprising that they have an arch so similar to the one in Paris, but smaller. You can't help but notice this Arch, but unfortunately for us, it was under a tarp being restored. I do like how in Europe that when a building is undergoing renovation, it is covered with... More

The Triumph Arch, located near the city center and quite frankly did not seem the most interesting attraction of the city, in fact it was under renovation and partly covered by scaffoldings so the photos were comes bad. Maybe get here by taxi and then return to the center on foot to discover a part of town not much frequented... More
