The Arc de Triomphe is a 50-meters high and 45-meters wide arch, which was built by Napoleon Bonaparte as a symbol of his power and victorious battles. It is situated on the Charles de Gaulle Square, on the western end of the famous Parisian boulevard Avenue des Champs-Élysées . The Arc de Triomphe was built in 1806 – 1836. It was designed by the architect Jean François Chalgrin.

The triumph of Napoleon

There are 2-meters high statues on the sides of the Arc de Triomphe. At the pedestal, there is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, who was buried there on 11 November 1920. Since that time, the arch commemorates all French soldiers who died in wars. In the left lower corner of the Arc de Triomphe, you can see the relief called the Triumph of Napoleon, which celebrates the Treaty of Vienna signed in 1810. Above the Triumph of Napoleon, there is a relief celebrating Napoleon's victories over the Turks in 1799. There is another relief depicting the French as protecting their nation from the Austrians and Prussians.


The Arc de Triomphe has a view-terrace, to which you can climb by stairs or ascend by lift. You will be rewarded by a beautiful panorama of Paris .
