Marszałkowska Street, Warsaw
|Length||3.6 km (2.2 mi)|
|South end||Union of Lublin Square|
|North end||Bank Square|
Contrary to a common urban legend that attributes the name to Marshal of Poland Józef Piłsudski, the street's name actually relates to 18th-century Grand Marshal of the Crown Franciszek Bieliński.
The street was almost entirely destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Rebuilding of Warsaw after World War II coincided with emergence of socialist realism, which greatly influenced the surrounding urban architecture.
