Origins of the Kalinowszczyzna district in Lublin: history, design principles and current condition


Abstract

Lublin developed rapidly at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s. Large residential districts were designed on rural areas surrounding the city. Lublin was expanded in almost every geographical direction, in accordance to the principles specified in the 1959 city master plan. The Kalinowszczyzna district was located in the north, covering local hills and ravines, and replacing the former farm and manor it was subsequently named after. The housing estates constructed there were erected mainly by means of prefabricated elements, and included both flats and shops. They also played cultural and administrative functions. The plan’s implementation was launched in 1963 and came to an end in 1980s. Kalinowszczyzna is currently one of 27 administrative districts of Lublin and constitutes an essential part of the city.
