This is such a serbian comment... and you know it's not true. Indeed, there are a few, unfortunately big, buildings which have been made to look like a setting for the new episode of loony toons (studentski trg, knez mihajlova, zavod za intelektualnu svojinu, etc..) but there are also a lot of good examples.. so instead of this remark, maybe showing the good examples would be a refreshing idea?!

Horrible , the old roof looked better. Why destroy such a nice looking older building by adding a roof which does not suit the olde building. I agree with the painting and repair though

I also think reparing commie blocks with glass facades is often a bad idea. Some will look just like Bauhaus with a little paint and care I mean the example of Estonia by ch1le. The old was better. They should have left it and repaired the really horrible commieblocks not that building
