Nothing extraordinary. But a good example of Triumph Arches in Many cities across eastern Europe and not only.

A core focal point of the downtown strip. It rounds out the feel of the area and is a pride point for many locals.

The Triumphal arch was built in 1840 by the architect I.

From its construction to 2011, the monument sheltered at its second level a huge bell of nearly 6,400 kg. It was made of copper coming from the cannons captured by the Russian forces from the Ottoman Empire. The bell was initially made for the cathedral's belfry but happened to be too big for it. Finally it was installed in this arch. The monument and the mechanism of its clock were fully restored in 1973.
