I was so surprised to see this Triumphal Arch looming ahead in the median between busy dual roads as our tour bus approached Victory Park. The median actually is very wide at this point like a paved city square so that people can approach this...More

Personally, i do not think this is that impressive when compared to the other Trimphal Arch in other European countries. So, visit this only if one can spare the time when in Moscow.

This arch is simply awesome in it's detailed sculpture, it's sheer presence which just makes you stand and look up to it in sheer amazement. And all of this while it sits in the middle of a busy ten lane dual carriageway.

Definitely has roman influence with the textures and the sculptures of warriors greeting whoever passes through the arch. Powerful words written on both sides of the arch, both beautiful and moving.

The Moscow Triumphal Arch was built in the 1830s to commemorate Russia’s victory over Napoleon. Today, it is located in the middle of Kutuzovsky Prospekt somewhere near Victory Park; the nearest metro station should be Park Pobedy. It is an impressive-looking structure, worth a visit...More

This monument looks very amazing within two big highways and the view around is very in Moscow style. If you will go further you will be in the Victory Park - one of the most significant places in Moscow. Highly recommend to visit these two...More

Pretty hard task to find a way to arch for a closer look. It's good to know that an original arch was built in 1834 near Tverskaya Zastava square which is 50 meters away from 1-ya Tverskaya-Yamskaya street. Arch was dismantled in 1936 with idea...More
