Renewal and decay side by side. I'd estimate that more than 80% of the city are renovated, it will take prob. 10 more years to finish the last buildings.

Cottbus is much nicer than I'd expected. Thank you very much for posting these images!

There is a very different concept of what "poor" means. Cottbus lost most of its manufacturing industry with the end of the socialist regime. However, because of German Federalism and public services, you are still better of than 90% of the world. The federal structure leads to nearly every city being renovated (over time). It also means that everyone has full public health care and free education, including the universities.

Thank you for this very nice thread. Your pictures are good quality and show Cottbus from a nice and diverse site. That not everything in Cottbus is good is clear and that there are also huge Plattenbau-areas most people know, but your pictures make obvious that Cottbus in parts has very nice architecture and that there are streets, where 10 or more historic building in a row and in high quality exist, something not every city in Germany has to offer. The city center around the marekt places shows that Cottbus for a long time was not bigger than cities like my hometown, but it is nice and much was invested in resent years. I liked it. That the fast growing of the city in GDR-time did not produce the nicest suburbs (1945 ~40.000 inhabitants 1989 ~130.000), should be clear, but at least it increased the regional significance of Cottbus, which otherwise would most likely be a middle sized city today. I especially like the theater - I find it somehow unique at least for the region. Is the inside of the theater also great? I also liked the Branitzer Park, which I explored by bike in March 2009.

I had never heard of this city until recently. It looks like a cozy and yet very clean city.
