Can there be any errors in any restoration of old structures and old towns in any city in the world?

Can someone post pictures of NEW buildings in Poland which are built in traditional/historic style?

Are the above posted pics just renovations of existing buildings?

The link illuminat suggested is a gross exagerration. I travelled the country 2 years ago and was very impressed by the historicism, historic reconstruction as well as the historic renovations...far better than anything I saw in western europe. It can also be said that building new buildings with new technology in a style reminiscent of historic ones rarely produces results that look very authentic. Try this link for some ideas:

I'm not gonna flood this thread with 1000's of pics (plus it's only fair the authors get their propper credit), so here's the link to Revitalization in Ljubljana, capital city of Slovenia.

The Istanbul pictures above are RENOVATIONS and not reconstructions I'm just saying it, but it looks good.

I've seen this thread for the first time and I'm simply amazed and stunned how much renovation is going on in Poland!
