Question: who is using all these castles/chateaux in Poland. Is it companies moving in, being split up into apartments, are they usually museums, or are they now owned by rich people?

I think it's a mixture of public / private investment.

The estates are often purchased by wealthy investors and are used as either private residences or hotels or a mixture of both. I'm not aware of any of the Lower Silesian palaces being used by corporations for business (other than hotels/tourism).

Some are renovated using public funds, often if there is an existing public institution located within the estate, such as museum or social service.

Hi,

Intervention got it right. Mostly it is bought from the government/local authorities for investment. It is very popular to change those buildings into conference/business centres and/or hotels. There is a huge demand for such buildings in Poland.

Those are not split into apartments, as normally it would then lead to issues with ownership long term. if kept as residence it is normally done by very wealthy individuals or reclaimed by the old families.

Big money coming from EU is also doing it's part, as the buildings which are used by local authorities for schools, hospitals, museum or other public means are being renovated with "reasonably small cost" to the local authorities. Those works are usually co-funded by EU to up to 80% even.

I just read book about Detroit of Charlie Le Duff. Incredible how city can fall down so much.
Keep finger crossed for further development.

Bethel Baptist Church Park Houston, Tx
Built: 1950 - Extensive damage in 2005, Revitalized in 2009

Quote:
Bethel Baptist Church (National Register of Historic Places) was founded by freed slaves in the 1890’s. It became a central element in a thriving African American Houston neighborhood called Freedmen’s Town. The most recent sanctuary (1950) on the site was devastated by fire in 2005, with only the interior concrete floor, concrete support columns and four walls surviving. The City of Houston purchased the property in 2009 and installed temporary bracing to stabilize the roofless structure for conversion to park use.

Bridge in Tczew, Poland being reconstructed to look like the formal self.

Some info from Wikipedia:
Bridges on the Vistula River – located by Jana z Kolna street and the Vistula boulevard are Tczew's main sights. The road bridge was the first one to be constructed, between 1851 and 1857. At the time, with its 837 metres’ length, it was one of the longest bridges in the world. Originally, the bridge had ten towers and two gateways – today only four towers remain. The other, railway bridge, was built between 1888 and 1890, when one bridge was no longer sufficient. On 1 September 1939 at 5:30AM, the bridges were destroyed by Polish sappers in order to prevent the German Army from accessing the city from the other side of the Vistula River. The bridges were rebuilt in 1940 and destroyed again in 1945 by the Germans. The final reconstruction of the bridges took place between 1958 and 1959.
