triumph...nostalgic feeling

Posted by gsrclicks (Gurgaon, India) on 8 September 2009 in Architecture.

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.

It was nice that you visited. I will be grateful if you could leave a comment so that i can learn and make you come back for more...Thanks
