Colors arent so great though I'm pretty sure it's Czech Republic btw but in Poland we have similar problems and windows often don't match.

Sorry, my bad, it is Czech Republic.

The colours aren't that bad. There's far worse ones. I think the oranges give them more of the vintage 70s character.

Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but it seems to me that tropical pastel color schemes are just not well suited to a place with the climate and lighting of the Czech Republic.

Szacun za zachowanie szklanej fasady!

Remont chyba sfinansowali ze sprzedaży/wynajmu powierzchni które były w podcieniach...

Generalnie szkoda że nie odtworzyli czarnych pasów pomiędzy oknami Ale z grubsza jest ok bo mogło być gorzej...
Shame they couldn't preserve the open spaces on the ground floor.

Agreed. I was referring to the modernist buildings illustrated in this thread.
Where is the square located? Its uncluttered rectilinearity reminds me of Ceske Budejovice, but it is not as large as that immense space.
