The Arch is smaller that Paris but we'll made to give the glory of entering the city as you come from the airport. Bucharest used to be call little Paris and is really worth visiting.

Beautiful arch in the middle of a traffic island, not quite the size of the one in Paris but a good size monument nonetheless. I wouldn't recommend a special trip since the bottom part of the arc is still surrounded by construction fences when we visited in late June. It seemed sufficient to us to see it in passing, driving... More

The Communist leader was fascinated by Paris and copied a lot of things from there... Worth seeing...

Before the renovations being started and never ending it was an iconic monument of Bucharest, maybe now is too, but with all the fences and things covering it you can say is only a top of a monument. I hope it will return to a full monument soon.

In the past century some wealthy family Bucharest children studied abroad and majored in French architecture giving rise to local city construction of the Belle... More

This simple arch has been ongoing renovations for a couple of years now. It's always surrounded by a high fence and it seems it'd be closed to the public for a long time to come.

Bucharest was once known as Little paris, thus the Arch de Triumph is not quite as big as the one in Paris. It was currently being renovated while we were there so we could not have a clear view of it.
