Kubusia Puchatka Street is a street in Warsaw. It was assigned in the first half of fifties, in place where the ruins of annexes’ buildings were used to stand. It is named after Winnie-the-Pooh.[1]

The street is 149 metres (489 ft) long, and in some parts it is 23 metres (75 ft) wide. It is supposed to be the walking path which should provide relief from crowds of the Nowy Swiat Street.

The whole street is built up with four-story buildings with shops on the ground floor.

Two rows of lime trees were planted along Kubusia Puchatka Street in 1954. They were transported from Szczecin. The street building’s project is a work of architect Zygmunt Stepiṅski and architecture students from Politechnika Warszawska.

The name of the street was chosen in the competition by readers of “Express Wieczorny” in 1954.

On the north end of Kubusia Puchatka Street, next to the crossing with Ṡwietokrzyska Street there is the Warsaw Metro station M2 Nowy Ṡwiat-Uniwersytet.
