Arc de Triomphe in Paris

Arc de Triomphe is a monument in the 8th arrondissement of Paris at the beginning of the Champs-Elysees, built in 1806-1836 by the architect Jean-Francois Chalgrin. The design of the arch "in the ancient Roman style" was developed by order of Napoleon Bonaparte to commemorate the victories of his "Great Army". The composition of the single-span ancient Roman triumphal arch of Titus in the Roman Forum was taken as a basis.

The walls of the arch are engraved with the names of 128 battles won by the republican and imperial armies, as well as the names of 660 French military leaders.

12 streets converge at Place Charles de Gaulle, including famous streets Av. des Champs-Elysees, Av. Kleber, Av. Victor Hugo.
