When I saw it for the first time last year it was under renovation. When I saw it again last week it was finished and reigning over Kiseleff avenue like an emperor in all its glory. Really impressive!

I only got to see this from the bus, as it is surrounded by boards whilst it is under repair. It will look great when the work is completed.

We saw this arch on a city sightseeing tour in mid-June as we drove along Kiseleff street from Victory Square. It was in the center of a roundabout on a very busy multi-lane street. Our first view of the white marble arch was lovely as it was framed by the green trees along the street. My general impression was how... More

Was there in July and it is undergoing repairs. Most of it is blocked off and not much is showing. You can walk around the square, but traffic around it is intense.

Nice photo op but the best part is when you head into the park beside it. Make sure you leave lots of time for exploring the park.

I did not know you can enter the Arch, we were passing and we saw some people waiting around so we stopped and went over there. It was very nice inside with video projections and pictures and when you get to the top you see a lot of the city!

Currently - and apparently for sometime the arch is surrounded by safety fencing as a refurbishment is coming to an end - no one seemed to have any idea when. But it is a structure worth looking at and a very useful landmark when your travelling around.
