No, but provocations possibly aren't quite what we're looking for here.

Believe me, we've got enough of those discussions. This is an architecture forum and that's the subject.

A small town for change, which was also completely destroyed in WW2. Zerbst in Eastern Germany was one of 4 residence towns of the principalities of Anhalt.




Looks a bit like Telc in Southern Moravia:

^ That was the Gothic St. Jacobi, one of the five Hauptkirche in Hamburg. It's still standing, but the spire was rebuilt in a simplified/modern form.

It did, it's the Jakobikirche. But the spire wasn't reconstructed, which looks quite odd. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakobikirche_(Hamburg)

Southern Poland was influenced by Italy (Kraków Zamość, Tarnów), Gdańsk was influenced by Netherlands.

Thanks @ GFM 3D & Erbse. Hopefully, the spire will be reconstructed some day.

I've already started looking up pictures of German cities such as Frankfurt, Muinich, Dresden, Berlin, Cologne, etc., and comparing them to the cities of today. One thing I noticed was that most of the cities don't follow the origional street plans and I have been unable to find good maps on the internet. It would be much appreciated if you could send me links. And please keep uploading pictures, I've been saving them and plan to use them to make models for rebuilding the cities in the future.

Another impressive one of Frankfurt old town before WW2:

At the Hühnermarkt (chicken market), from a private collection found on some old garret. What you can see on this early color photo will be reconstructed on the areal of the former technical city hall:

Thanks Karasek. This explains why the city looks like other north German cities. I don't think this is the place to rehash the Versailles Treaty; the shifting boundaries of north-central Europe are hard enough to qualify. I suppose the key to understand the "German-ness" vs. the "Polish-ness" of a city is tied to the city's greatest period of growth and development. If a piece of land was German but there were no city there, and then it became Polish and a city was built, it would be Polish. The same is true in the inverse, no?

Except that the Hanseatic League was German, no?
