My point is that I'm fed up with all these praises relating to what germans did. If they hadn't destroyed part of our heritage and didn't take our freedom, we would have had even better architecture. And I don't care about germans the way you think of, I am just tired reading what they did to us, while the most important thing they did was killing our intelligence. Enough of this offtopic, if you want sth from me, try PM.
Btw. Wroclaw is deformed enough by buildings in the outskirts.

PS If you want to tell me that I'm primitive, cause I raise historical problems go on, but remember that only fool doesn't care about past/history of his country (cause it can happen again). Again - PM.

Maybe not so sophisticated and built from cheaper materials, but still not bad. Time spoiled most of these buildings, now they're grey and dirty, but I assure you they'd look very modern after proper restoration. Even ugly commieblock can be renovated so that it looks acceptable Of course people in countries of former eastern block have hardly no idea about aesthetics, painting blocks and other modern architecture of period in ugly, trashy, colorful way (yellow/green/pink and so on ) - that's biggest problem.

You are right, communist architecture as well as various offshoots of totalitarianism(soft and hard), are alive and well, all around the world. That doesn't mean, we should accept it, not in Wroclaw, London, or Toronto.

I've seen o lot of pics of Wroclaw, but I've never been there. Next time I visit central Europe, I'm definitely making the trip.
