Location and Accessibility

Situated on Kiseleff Road in Bucharest's northern district, the arch is easily accessible by public transport (buses 79, 301, 331) or a scenic walk through Herăstrău Park. The closest metro station, Aviatorilor is about 700 meters away. The arch is less than 5 Km north of the historic city center.

What to See Inside

Once inside, visitors can explore the arch's interior, which often hosts exhibitions and displays highlighting Romania's history and culture. Ascend the spiral staircase to reach the top platform, where you'll be rewarded with unparalleled views of Bucharest's skyline and surrounding landmarks.


Tickets and Times To Visit

Entry to the Arch of Triumph was free when we visited. Now, the opening hours change regularly. When we shot the video, it was scheduled to be open only on weekends, from June until the end of October. Guards at the entrance are there to guide you and help you go up and down.


Panoramic Views from the Top

From the summit of the Arch of Triumph, visitors can enjoy panoramic vistas of Bucharest, taking in iconic sights such as the Palace of the Parliament, Herastrau Park, and the vibrant cityscape below. It's an ideal spot for photography enthusiasts and anyone seeking to capture the essence of Romania's capital city from above.


History of the Arch of Triumph in Bucharest

Constructed between 1921 and 1922, the Arch of Triumph in Bucharest was built to commemorate Romania's victory in World War I and to honor the bravery of its soldiers. This architectural marvel is designed by architect Petre Antonescu at the northern end of the city's historic boulevard, Kiseleff Road.

Technical Details

The dimensions of Bucharest's Arch of Triumph set it apart from its Parisian counterpart, being notably smaller yet no less impressive. Standing at 27 meters tall and spanning 26 meters in width, with an inner arch height of 16 meters, this architectural gem offers a scaled-down but still majestic experience.

Access to the terrace atop the monument is gained through the interior of its legs, reached by navigating 328 steps. Inside, the Arc de Triomphe is organised into levels, with staircases punctuated by platforms for resting.

The construction materials speak to the craftsmanship and durability of the monument. Cladding and decorations feature Dobrogea stone, a type of limestone, alongside intricate mosaic work and sturdy granite accents. The underlying structure is reinforced concrete, ensuring the stability and longevity of this iconic landmark.

The total height is 27 meters and the width spans in 26 meters.
