 Triumphal Arch of Moscow 

 
 

     Triumphal Arch of Moscow was built in 1829-1834 in Moscow after the project of architect O.I.Bove in honor of the victory of the Russian people in the Patriotic War of 1812.
     The idea of building Triumphal Arch of Moscow as the Victory Monument belongs to Emperor Nicholas I. In April 1826 during the coronation festivities in Moscow he expressed a desire to build in the ancient capital Triumphal Arch like the one which was built at that time in St. Petersburg.
