The impressive road begins in the Victory Square and the Victory Gate there, that was established in 1922 in the memory of the Romanian soldiers who fell during World War I, and is similar to the victory gate in Paris. The road continues along another victory gate, this time in a Roman style, and ends in the Casa Presei Libere Square.
All along Kiseleff Road you can find benches, where you can sit and enjoy the air. If you asked yourself how Bucharest became the "Gem of the East," you might start to understand by sitting here.
On November 8, 1931, after the Romanian's military involvement in Operation Barbarossa, the military forces spread across the victory gate, in front of the Prime Minister and Conducător, Ion Antonescu. The name of the road was then changed to King Michael Avenue. After the war, the name was changed by the Romanian Communist rulers.
