Mini Paris? Not really

The Romanians are very proud of this monument to the fallen of WWI but it was being restored while we were there. Not sure it's worth a special trip but it sits at the junction... read more

The Romanians are very proud of this monument to the fallen of WWI but it was being restored while we were there. Not sure it's worth a special trip but it sits at the junction of several main streets and difficult to miss if you want just a drive past.

The arch is currently being remodeled. I'm in Bucharest now and was looking forward to seeing it. Finally went today. It has one of those papers around it, made to look like the real thing. I was sadly disappointed.

Skip this, still under construction for repairs. There is nothing to see, totally covered. This is a copy of the Arch de Triump in Paris.

I've been to Bucharest 4 times in the past year and only ever got to see this on my first visit. I know these kinds of monuments require maintenance to ensure they don't go to ruin but it's been a year now and this is supposed to be one of the main attractions! Maybe you could visit in 10 years... More

I've driven by here on many trips to Bucharest. I especially like it when it rains as it reminds me of the one in Paris. It's beautiful and a symbol that above all, life and world events return to normal and triumph over the bad.

this kind of copy from france culture is normal in Bucharest but ... really, it's for from the original. (and I don't see much the point of the original neither, so ...) if you drive by, just drive around a few times, that's all.

I was looking forward to seeing this but it was covered in scaffolding. I was there the last week of March 2015.

Such a grand symbol of the city, it offers great views from its top. Such a shame it is under reconstruction for the past year.
