Description:
Muranów is a neighborhood consisting mainly of housing estates in the districts of Śródmieście and Wola in Warsaw founded in the 17th century. The name derived from the palace belonging to Józef Bellotti, a Venetian architect. The name of estate comes from an island of Murano.

Muranow is an unique district, not only from Polish perspective. The only housing estate in the world located - intentionally! - on the rubble of Warsaw Ghetto and built from this rubble. The only one urbanistic concept from 50`s of such a scale in the capital of Poland, whose architects, inspired mostly by pre-war modernism, also took a lot from socrealism.

In the Interwar period, the district was inhabited mostly by Jews — because of that the Warsaw Ghetto has been located here by occupying Germans. After uprising in 1943 commanded by Mordechaj Anielewicz the district has been completely destroyed. A few buildings have survived the war. Rebuilt after war in style of socrealism.

In the future, a Warsaw Metro station Muranów (crossroads of Anielewicz and Anders streets) and Museum of History of Polish Jews are to be built.
