The monument is located on Kiseleff Street, Bucharest. Its interior can be visited only on special occasions.
The Triumphal Arch is one of the biggest symbols of Bucharest. Initially built out of wood in 1878 to celebrate the National Independence, the emblematic monument was replaced in 1922 with another one, in the memory of the participation of the Romanian Army at the World War I. This too suffered some modifications in 1935-1936 when it was remodeled after the Arc de Triomphe from Paris. The Bucharest Triumphal Arch has a height of 27 m and it is built in the classical style having a small museum inside its walls and a terrace which can be accessed only on certain occasions.
