The Triumphal Arch
(Arcul de Triumf)
Bucharest, Romania.

The triumphal arch is 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 meters and was built after the plans of the architect Petre Antonescu. It has as foundation a 25 x 11.50 meters rectangle. The sculptures with which the facades are decorated were created by famous Romanian sculptors such as Ion Jalea and Dimitrie Paciurea.

Very nice!
You never cease to impress me. I can't wait to get all of my new work up here, I finally got an appropriate camera. A Canon XTi EOS 50 It's awesome. I might not even have to use HD effect in the photoshop!
Great work!

i have to say...this piece is what i wish my photography could be...classic with beauty, yet stunning. You can feel so much emotion from it yet if you wish, you can feel nothing at all...It's a beautifully done piece.
