When I was last in Bucharest they were renovating it, huge tarp over it, looked like a serious job, so I'm sure it will turn out great once completed. It is a smaller copy of the... read more

You cannot miss it if you visit Bucharest. It is of the many connections we have with Paris - this one being in the top.

When I was last in Bucharest they were renovating it, huge tarp over it, looked like a serious job, so I'm sure it will turn out great once completed. It is a smaller copy of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, so not as impressive but still a great piece of architecture.

Once the symbol of "the little Paris", as Bucharest used to be called in-between WWI and WWII, the structure had been under works (restoration?) for almost two years. Covered by scaffolds or heavy "wrapping" the monument cannot be visited.

I was surprised when I passed this Arch as I didn't know it was here. It is beautiful like the one in Paris, probably a little smaller and the roundabout surrounding the arch is not as big as the one in Paris. It is worth visiting when in Bucharest if you like this type of architecture.

I visited it several times but for about 2 years it is closed due to reconstruction/consolidation work. It doesn't wort the effort to go there because it is covered with a "picture" of itself - you cannot even see it.

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
