Masovian Voivodeship Conservator of Monuments Prof. Jakub Lewicki ordered conservation and construction works to be carried out in the tenement house at 25 Jagiellońska Street in Warsaw. The interior of the 19th century monument is in a deplorable condition.

As noted on social media by prof. Jakub Lewicki, the work is necessary “due to the risk of destruction or significant damage to the facility”. The conservator emphasized that the decision was immediately enforceable.

“The building is one of the oldest surviving buildings on Jagiellońska Street. It was erected in 1881 for Władysław and Tekla Skroński” – reminded prof. Levitical.

The tenement house was entered into the register of monuments of the Masovian Voivodeship on October 16, 2020.

As we read in earlier MWKZ announcements, Jagiellońska Street is one of the oldest streets in Warsaw’s Praga district, its southern part already existed before 1762. After 1875, this part of the street, then called Moskiewska Street, began to fill up with small, two-story tenement houses at most, next to which wooden houses of a similar size were still erected. Two tenement houses from this period have been preserved to our times: no. 34 and 25, as well as relics in the lower parts of the later extended houses.

The tenement house is the oldest, almost fully preserved relic of residential buildings in Jagiellońska Street and one of the oldest buildings of this type in the entire Praga district.
