“Visit the arch and Herastrau park on the same visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

The Arch is found at one of the main entrances to Herastrau Park. You should have a look when you are in the neighborhood, but do not expect to see one like in Paris.
The other reviews give a good history.

“Outside is ok, inside is gorgeous”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The Tripumph Arch is rarely opened up to public, mostly due to the lack on an access point, but if you are in town when it is opened (think Bucharest days or Museum Night), don't hesitate to visit. While a tad smaller than the one in Paris, it's still a great vantage point to see most of Bucharest.

“A place to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Arcul de Triumf is a triumphal arch located in the northern part of Bucharest, on the Kiseleff Road.

The first, wooden, triumphal arch was built hurriedly, after Romania gained its independence (1878), so that the victorious troops could march under it. Another temporary arch was built on the same site, in 1922, after World War I, which was demolished in 1935 to make way for the current triumphal arch, which was inaugurated in September 1936.

The current arch has a height of 27 metres and was built after the plans of the architect Petre Antonescu. It has as its foundation a 25 x 11.50 metres rectangle. The sculptures with which the facades are decorated were created by famous Romanian sculptors such as Ion Jalea and Dimitrie Paciurea. Nowadays, military parades are held beneath the arch each 1 December, with the occasion of Romania's national day.

it's nice to see it first handed...
