Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Bucharest, Romania

As we all know, during wars many soldiers disappear and they are never found. In Bucharest there is a monument dedicated to the unknown soldiers who died fighting for Romania during World War I.

The monument was built in 1923 and its location changed along the years – now it has returned to the original place.

If you stroll through this park, you’ll most likely notice the impressive mausoleum (its story in another article) – and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is located just in front of it – you’ll notice it as soon as you get closer to the mausoleum.

As an important note, you can reach the Mausoleum on stairs or on the side alleys – no stairs there.

And the view over the park that you get once there, near the Mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, is beautiful – you’ll see that it was worth your effort.
