It was a simple question and the simple answer would be a couple of European countries with Germany at the front in sheer quantity.
It doesn't matter how much more wealthier Germany is and how much bigger its cultural legacy is. The simple fact is that Germany has the most and largest scale reconstructions right now.
Where have I dismissed Germany? I've been on this forum for almost 3 years and you know how passionate I am about all those amazing projects happening in Germany, but as I said, you can't really say which country leads as they focus on different fields. And also, you can't say that reconstructions are common in Germany when they've literally been happening in only 5 big cities, which shows it's still a tabu topic in the country. I mean, Berliner Stadtschloss barely survived attacks from many groups opposing its reconstruction. Germany is also reconstructing showier pieces of architecture, while a 19th century building would never be reconstructed there, unlike in some parts of Eastern Europe where it's quite common.
All that doesn't mean that I think your country is in any way inferior to others, it's just that different countries have different priorities due to different circumstances, which is fine and quite interesting, as we get diverse stuff from around the continent. No need to get offended or anything like that, it's just that people may have different criterias when it comes to controversial topics like these.

Yes, in the first post, but the second post was an answer to my post.

You seem a bit upset by my post. I didn't mean it like that at all. I know you are a cool guy.
I was just stating the (I guess we can call it fact) that Germany currently is reconstructing the most projects in Europe and the largest scale projects at that too (Dresden's old city, Potsdam's old city, Frankfurt's old city and the huge Berlin City Palace).
I'm not saying there are no reconstructions in other European countries or that they aren't of the same standard or quality. No, not at all. Just quantity-wise Germany obviously leads. Easy for such an economically successful, big and populated country.
I also don't understand why this has to be a controversial topic here among us all of a sudden. It wasn't for so many years. Just don't overthink it, alright?

How about you too share some of the most prominent reconstruction projects in a country of your liking, like I did with Germany? maybe I am totally underestimating what many projects and cities are reconstructed in Hungary (other than what was already shown in this thread) for example. I can't know of everything.

It's all right, maybe I overreacted a little bit. Germany does have the largest-scale projects as of lately, which is fascinating since those buildings were destroyed 70 years ago. It's also hard to put your whole opinion on a difficult topic in a couple of sentences on a foreign language, I've found myself reading some of my older posts and wishing I'd structured them differently in order to express my opinion as clear as I could.

Unfortunately, I get most of my information about reconstructions from this forum, so I wouldn't know much about other countries, and where I live, we don't have many true reconstruction projects, most of those happen in the eastern part of the country since that area suffered the most during the war in the 1990s, and other posters from Croatia have done a good job of sharing photos from those areas in this thread and the revitalization thread. Of course, if a miracle happens and someone reconstructs a medieval fortress or other important building close to my home, I'll post it here...

Actually various 19th century buildings have (at least partly) been reconstructed in Germany in the past 30 years. Just look at the amazing Leipzig!

Gran Teatro La Fenice, Venezia - Italy

On 29 January 1996, La Fenice was completely destroyed by fire. Only its acoustics were preserved, since Lamberto Tronchin, an Italian acoustician, had measured the acoustics two months earlier.
After various delays, reconstruction began in earnest in 2001. In 650 days, a team of 200 plasterers, artists, woodworkers, and other craftsmen succeeded in recreating the ambiance of the old theatre, at a cost of some €90 million.
La Fenice was rebuilt in 19th-century style on the basis of a design by architect Aldo Rossi who, in order to obtain details of its design, used still photographs from the opening scenes of Luchino Visconti's film Senso (1954), which had been filmed in the house. La Fenice reopened on 14 December 2003 with an inaugural concert of Beethoven, Wagner, and Stravinsky. The first staged opera was a production of La traviata, in November 2004.
Critical response to the rebuilt La Fenice was mixed. The music critic of the paper Il Tempo, Enrico Cavalotti, was satisfied. He found the colours a bit bright but the sound good and compact. However, for his colleague Dino Villatico of the La Repubblica, the acoustics of the new hall lacked resonance, and the colours were painfully bright. He found it "kitsch, a fake imitation of the past". He said that "the city should have had the nerve to build a completely new theater; Venice betrayed its innovative past by ignoring it".

It's an interesting project but not actually a reconstruction of a destroyed or damaged building and as you say not in Europe.

If this forum is a good guide to reconstructions going on in Europe at the moment I would say Poland has maybe the most of any country?

I usually love when this thread pops up..but now Im leaving it with a sick feeling in my stomach Actually so heart breaking to see this happening in 2018
Probably if it was early modernism or some shit they'd do all in their power to not demolish it , ugh.

I actually wish there was just one country or city filled with beautiful buildings in old style that no greedy ******* developer or modernist 'forward thinkers' or money grabbing monkeys can have even the slightest say in how the city is planned
