The fortifications of Bucharest consisted of 18 detached forts with 18 intermediate support batteries. The fortifications were placed 12-13 km form the residential areas of the town and (including the support batteries) 2 km from each other, that being the effective range of the rapid firing 57 mm guns; the forts themselves were placed approximately 4 km to each other. The total perimeter was around 72 km. The ring of fortification was build in order to maintain Bucharest outside the range of enemy long range artillery, to secure a circular, all directions defence and to forbid the enemy access to the city.
Work begins in 1884, and after a considerable financial effort of the Romanian state, are completed in 1899.
