HistoryEdit

The house in the street of the Police (formerly the street of Yusif Mammadaliyev) was built in 1900 in the Baroque style by the architect Józef Płoszko. One of the balconies of the building was supported by the sculptures of the Atlanteans, therefore the building was known as the "House with Atlanteans".[2]

DismantlingEdit

In 2004, information appeared that the building was going to be demolished. In 2008, the residents of the house were evicted. The reason for the eviction was called the restoration of the building. In early 2010, the House with Atlanteans was dismantled.[3]
