Victoriei Avenue

Victoriei Avenue is one of the most important traffic lanes in Bucharest, spreading from Națiunile Unite Square, all the way to Victoriei Square.

It got its name – Victoriei Avenue – in 1878, when the Romanian Army triumphantly marched into the Capital after the Independence War.
