Search for the dates it is opened and go up! This is something that it couldn;t be done in the previous years, but you can do it now - twice a year i think. The view is impressive. It is not like the one in Paris but it is very nice. The museum inside is also very nice. After they... More

The end of the independence war is a very good reason to build such a monument and while it may be unfortunate that it appears similar to the more famous cousin, the meaning behind it is no less important.

Was built between the two WWs by the royal family to celebrate heros coming from the war. Some comments in this post do not render justice to this monument. It was he spirit of the time to celebrate the end of the WW1 and not a must have cheap copy of the Parisian monument. Two other details: the monument was... More

It's under renovation but even if it wasn't I don't think there's much to see here. Looks like younger (and worse looking) brother of Parisian Triumph Arc :)

We just passed by it on our way to the Village Museum. We couldn't see much of it as long as it was under renovation.

This is a small copy of the original. Don't waste your time traveling to see this, partly because it's anticlimactic and mostly because it's under renovation. Such a disappointment because so many landmarks are being renovated and there is no warning until you arrive. Skip this and plan a tour of another landmark.

Smaller and not as nicely decorated as the one in Paris, it is not accessible to visit either. You will see it if you go visit the Village Museum because it is situated between the museum and the metro station (Aviatorilor).

Lots of scaffolding around the entire base of the arch. It is a great monument, but not so nice to look at. I don't understand the many funny remarks like "fake copy", or "regular arch"... It is a building, not a "pleasure creating machinery", so if you like buildings, look at it, if you want to see something totally unique,... More

A local guide tried to explain to me why they needed this and it seems it was just a period they wanted to copy everything from Paris. There is NO added benefit for the city nor is it any relevant for tourists. I walked by while on my way to the VIllage museum (very nice)... Make sure you don't make... More

There's nothing unique about this arch other than the fact it's a triumph arch. You will probably see it when the taxi passes next to it on your way from the airport to the city. The arch is not too impressive nor is it accessible to the public anymore and this is why there's no need to actually visit it,... More
