Broad boulevards and park areas as well as impressive palaces once earned Bucharest its name as the 'Paris of the East'. One of the city's landmarks is the Triumphal Arch, modelled after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Many other magnificent monuments remain and are mingled with evidence of the location's Communist past. The Palace of the Parliament, which is the world's second-largest administrative building, cannot be missed.
