Napoleon Bonaparte commissioned Arc de Triomphe (Triumphal Arch) to commemorate the French victory over Austrians and Russians at Austerlitz (1805) during the Napoleonic Wars. However, the monument wasn't completed before his final downfall (1815), thus featuring a different design than initially conceived. Bas-reliefs and other works of art commemorate military and other successes of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods, such as battles at Aboukir in 1799 (Egypt) and Austerlitz. Marseillaise, however, depicting the departure of the volunteers in 1792, is the monument's masterpiece. The observational platform at the top of Arc de Triomphe offers exceptional views of Paris. Those encompass the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysees and other boulevards converging at the monument, Louvre, Montmartre, etc. (Photo by Kreshen on Unsplash – https://unsplash.com/photos/lNs2Bg103_g)
