From 80 000 to 120 000 Euros, depending the size of the apartment, maybe even more expensive...

Another example from my hometown Skopje... The photo is older, the building today is open for use with residential apartments.

This seems to be one of the very few recent examples of neoclassicism in Skopje that actually works in some way.
Most of the rest is pure kitsch, sorry to say.

Seems like every new residential building has to have balconies. In my opinion they tend to ruin the lines of the building.

I agree that balconies detract from the appearance of buildings, but architects seem to be catching on that incorporating the balcony into the facade, rather than tacking them on, refines the look. When the balconies are flush with the facade, the openings can actually add some depth and rhythm to the design.

Thats not entirely true Tiaren. Most of the "Neo Historicist" buildings in russia copy stiles of socialist classicism or russian Jugendstil which is a direct derivation of our Jugenstil. The difference is that most of russian Jugenstil is of lesser detail than its central european equivalent, but that doesnt make it a lesser stile. The problem is, that a lot of buildings try to reproduce stalinist stiles in kombination with glass facades and oversized windows which always looks tacky.
Thats by the way pretty often the case in US too.

And for gods sake, the only countries i see falling back to its "own" heritage of historistic buildings i see is actually France.
Nearly everything you see in europe is orginated in roman/italaian stiles or derived of those.
Do you really want us germans to start building half timbered houses in our cities again? That would be the "back to regional stiles" for us together with Bauhaus and Streamline/Modernism, which are in fact german stiles but not historicist...
True is that the rate of kitch in central europe is generally lower, but thats because we dont have the same amount of neo historism in our cities and we have a longer history in producing the original stiles in extend.
Neo Historism in Germany started some 20 years ago and has now reached its peak in Berlin. But architects seem to get lazy already. They just copy paste most of the buildings with little variation which isnt to bad at all as long as it is not becoming a major stile.

You were just trolling right?

I mean you didnt realize that Art Nouveau and Jugenstil are the f*** same stile. And you dindt even know the right spelling!
