MDM is an acronym meaning Marszalkowska Dzielnica Mieszkaniowa (Marszalkowska Residential Area). This neigborhood, which is in fact a jewel of Socialist Realist style was built in 1950-52, and was supposed to prove the growing power of Communism. That's why it's monumental, like the pre-war German architecture of light and space, and full of symbolic statues representing farm workers, miners, teachers and the like. The focal point of the neighborhood is Plac Konstytucji (Constitution Square), with a Burger King residing under the reliefs representing communist deeds.
