Mazowsze (Masovia in English) is a historical region of Poland, so Makow
Mazowiecki is Masovian Makow, as distinguished >from Masurian Makow (if
there is one) or some other Makow.

Several Polish towns have double names like Makow Mazowiecki. What
does the second part of their name -Mazowiecki - mean?
