The historic arch was made of wood, it was plundered and altered, in 1930 it was dismantled. The new structure is planned to be made of modern anti-vandal materials; construction is scheduled for 2022.

Nikolai Romanov visited Khabarovsk during his trip around the world in 1890–1891 while still a tsarevich. He went on a trip by the decision of Father Alexander III to get acquainted with the achievements of world civilization in the countries of the East. Having visited Greece, Egypt, India, Ceylon, Singapore, Java, Siam, China and Japan on May 11, 1891, he arrived in Vladivostok on the frigate "Pamyat Azov", then he visited Khabarovsk and Blagoveshchensk.

Local historians, connoisseurs of urban history, administration officials, representatives of the All-Russian Society for the Protection of Monuments, as well as Metropolitan of Khabarovsk and Amur Artemy took part in the event of installing a memorial stone.

Khabarovsk Mayor Sergei Kravchuk noted: “We are not just reviving the Arc de Triomphe, we are touching the pre-revolutionary history of Khabarovsk. The visit of Tsarevich Nicholas became an important event in the history of our city ”.
