It amazes me every time I see photos in this thread, how Poland preserves and (re)creates the mixed heritage in the former German areas. It looks amazing and very different to what the Russians do in Kaliningrad.

We are simply avoiding to post pics of small towns in Warmia & Mazury "rebuilt" in 1960s

But, being serious: that's right, there is a phenomenon, clearly visible in Warmia & Mazury: the new generation of Polish architects tend to use some local traditions in creating new projects. For example, the so called "Prussian wall" technology (or "Prussian wall look-a-like technology) is being used.


It is also worth mentioning that the pre-1945 buildings still make up the large part of the substance: over 25% in cities, nearly 50% in villages.

Interesting. We actually now tend to use less similar, traditionally determined and common to regions elements and focus only on very small (regional) elements and technologies. I don't know whet it is good or not. Some agencies prepared "recommendations" by distinguishing separate regions and put a strong emphasis on how certain elements should look like. On the one hand, those recomnd. are not compulsory, but apparently architects keep them in mind...

I.e. like this one (sea-side):

curonian spit :

Russia is Eurasia. And don't forget the differences firstly in religion (this is why local prewar churches are in decay and orthodox ones are being built). Don't think that local people don't care about our heritage, many of them are trying to reconstruct buildings with their own hands. Unfortunately there is almost no support from the authorities.
Nevertheless there're projects concerning renovation and rebuilding of some objects, and I really hope they'll be done.

I met the Russians and liked them, your problem is just the authorities, not people.
You're right. Good luck to all Russians who can think differently than their authorities.

Manor in Łajsy/Leissen, Warmia (now being renovated)



* Residence of Jankowski noble family (18th century), von Zabiensky family (19th century) and Benno Orlowski (20th century).

Manor in Baranowo/Barranowen, Masuria (now being renovated)

* Residence of Milowski (16th century), von Hoverbeck (17th century) and Rogalla (17th-20th century) families.

Former Protestant Church (built in 1907) in Baranowo/Barranowen, Masuria


Of course, hundreds of new manors are being built in the region. If you have enough money, you could be a proud owner of property in Warmia or/and Masuria (you'll find announcements online).

It must have been such a strange situation for the Russian families who found a new home in Kalinningrad Oblast, completely ruined cities, which slowly where demolished further and replaced by Soviet flat blocks. Does anybody know how families where selected, who had to move to the conquered territories? I have read literature about what the Polish did and how they repopulated the western territories, but I haven't found any thing about how the Russians/Soviets did that. I would be very interested to read more about it.

Yeahh it looks like Królewiec old town was in much better shape after the war than old town in Gdańsk although now it's different story...

"Much better" is exaggerated. Königsberg was completey destroyed too. Problem is, that the russians did nearly nothing in the city after the war. And what they later did, wasn't very nice too.

What I know that, these all families were transported from central Russia. Long time (from the moment when they stayed there) everyone thought that there they are just temporarily. Psychologically, it was difficult to understand that they can live in German territory. Many of them felt that will start new war. First years situation was very difficult, lack of food. Can you imagine man who came from central Russia near Curonian spit, Baltic sea, where real locals lived only from fishing here? Many of people where spied, even for most of them it was forbidden to use former locals some things.
Small part of Germans/local Lithuanians who left here sent their children to Lithuania looking for food,so appeared "Wolf children".

Percentage comparison of the damage does not make sense. The buildings were in a different state, and still were counted to "demolition".

Compare pictures with in the main city of Gdańsk and old town in Królewiec.
