The road was created in 1832 by Pavel Kiselyov, the commander of the Russian occupation troops in Wallachia and Moldavia. The name was converted from Kiselyov to Kiseleff, using the French transliteration of Russian names at the time.
Victory Square (Piaţa Victoriei) and Casa Presei Libere (Piaţa Presei Libere) stand at its two extreme points. The street has numerous museums, parks (Kiseleff Kiseleff and Herăstrău Park), grand residences, and the Arcul de Triumf along it between those end points.
Notable buildings on Șoseaua Kiseleff include:
- Elisabeta Palace, residence of Crown Princess Margareta
- The Museum of the Romanian Peasant
- The Geology Museum
- The Grigore Antipa Natural History Museum
- The Village Museum
- The headquarters of the Social Democratic Party
- Palatul Prințului Moștenitor, currently the headquarters of ING Bank Romania
