Arch

Still under renovation, so the base is covered and one can't go under or into the Arch. It's a landmark, of course part of "Little Paris," as Bucharest's nickname goes.

This landmark is similar in design to the arch in Paris though not exactly the same. It's near the south entrance to Herastrau park.

After what seemed to be eternity, the renovations of the arch are finally completed. The gate looks good, but unfortunately, it is not lit at all after dark, though it can only be appreciate during the day. What a shame... .

It is located close to two parks a bit far from the city centre. Getting there from the centre on foot is a very nice walk if the weather is nice. The monument itself is similar to the one in Paris but I don't think it can be visited (at least on a regular basis) and it is the centre... More

The Herastrau park starts here and Baneasa forest is also nearby. You definitely should take a stroll around the Triumph Arch and you can walk all the way to downtown from here.

You cannot drive underneath/through it - only once a year when you can go up to the top. We drove round it on our way into town from the airport. Not really worth a special detour though.

This symbol does look cute in any city. If you drive, you come up to the Arch along a very nice alley.

In your way to or from Herastau Park you will for sure meet The Arch. In a boulevard bigger than Champs-Élysées you will absolutely get the feeling that you (somehow) are in Paris. The building itself is quite similar (if not the same) with the French and I think that this was the purpose.

Seeing this site on a tour bus is adequate. Important in Romanian history. Looks similar to that of Paris.

Walked around and around it. . . There is a lot of pride in making something so lovely to represent their freedom.
