      Arc de Triomphe, or as it is called, the Arch of Fame, was built in the late XVIII century in honor of Mogilev Empress Catherine II. Here she met the Austrian Emperor Joseph II.

      Arch is a rectangular building with two projections, which completed a wide cornice and a triangular pediment Laman, ўraўnavazhanae at the ends of the two columns. In the center of the facade - a great niche.

      With the establishment of the Soviet government wanted to demolish the triumphal arch. But then changed their minds and decided to install it on a plaque and bas-reliefs depicting the coat of arms of Vladimir Lenin and the Soviet Union. All this resulted in an architectural absurdity - Neighborhood imperial style with communist slogans.
