is a neighborhood consisting mainly of housing estates in the districts of Śródmieście
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
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
(crossroads of Anielewicz and Anders streets) and Museum of History of Polish Jews
are to be built.
