“The Arch on December 1st”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Today is the national day of Romania! They like to celebrate it in a French way, with a wonderful military parade, crossing just under their Arch of Triumph. I was very lucky to be in Bucharest on this day, even the weather was ok (as ok it can be in December). Too bad that everybody that didn't see it must wait for another year. The Arch resembles the one in Paris, but it is built in a different style, size is different, you can't confuse the 2.

“Bad copy of the french Arch”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

If you go from or to the airport you will most definetly see the romanian Triumph Arch, a lot smaller and more modest than the french one and one of the reasons we like to call ourselves "little Paris". From a personal point of view, this is a dissapointment, for the lack of originality and also for its lack of availabilty to the public. It can only be visited on the inside a few days a year and with great dificulty.

“Arch of Bucharest”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The Arch de Triumph in Bucharest was a very beautiful architectural piece. I would recommend all those people who are going to visit Bucharest, to have a look at this monument.
The Arch de Triumph was built in 1878 for the independence day of Romania and is a symbol of unity of Roman nation. The arch was built inspired from the Paris Arch de Triumph. Initially it was made of wood and it got its the current look in 1936.
