Socialist Realist buildings occupy a large part of the main arteries in Warsaw. Marszałkowska, Krucza, Jerozolimskie Avenues, Grójecka, Solidarności Avenue are clad with them. They are an eloquent testimony of their times and, like the old buildings, tell us about the past. Before the category of monument was defined and the need to protect works of the past was understood, most of the Colosseum and the Acropolis were demolished, Paris was rebuilt.
