Now the Arch is being restored, it is very similar with the one in Paris and it is located near Herastrau park.

It's hard to judge how good an attraction this really is at the moment, as it's currently completely covered up during restoration. My main reason for giving an average score is that it really just sits in the middle of a roundabout, rather like Marble Arch and Wellington Arch in London, which, like the Arcul de Triumf in Bucharest, could...

We visited in November and currently there is major renovation work being undertaken to the Arc. It is completely covered and so please check the status of it's repair before you make a special trip.

I have been there many times. Even so it is right now behind scaffolding it is a place to visit. The Arch is a place where most of the freshly married couples go and take pictures. Under normal circumstances this place can be crowded. It is a must to see when you are in Bucharest.

This was quite interesting as built to commemorate the soldiers returning after WWI. Very similar in looks to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. We admired it from outside but apparently you can go inside.

It's completely surrounded by scaffolding and a tarp with an image of the Arc. Maybe they think if you look fast enough you won't notice? My taxi driver told me they are restoring it and making it more resistant to earthquakes. It's probably pretty cool when it's uncovered, but right now it's a disappointment.

It seems the Triump Arch is under repair right now since there's scaffolding all around. At least there's a photo of the Arch printed on the scaffolding so you can imagine what's hidden behind.

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
