What is the financial source of these reconstructions in Poland? (i think about the facades, not the streets and squares)

These are not reconstruction, only renovations. The financial source is the private money (with subsidies) for houses , and of course public money for public buildings

New "Old Town" of Elblag, Poland. Trams will be re-introduced after 60 year absence next year. The entire city was obliterated during WWII but in the past 10 years 70% of its urban core has been reconstructed.

It's quite kitchy and post-modern, but all things considered (i.e. location, historical context, economy and demand for development) this is not a terrible development. I think some of the buildings have been redone quite nicely.

The reconstructions of Elbing are meant good, but their to modern. I'm not so keen on the 'reconstructions'. Thirty percent is left of the undeveloped grounds in the city, I read in this forum? Hmmm....... maybe they should reconstruct some buildings and houses on that grounds, in a way to make it look historical.

1) Please credit your sources, give links to them.

2) Rather reduce the amount of pictures per post. To 5 photos would be good.
It's a comfort issue for the viewer.

Oslo, Norway

Karl Johans Gate, central Oslo.

Before. Basically a feeeway.

About the same angle today.

Overview (I did not find a before picture from the same angle, but the stone works, cobblestones and perfectly lined up threes have all been added as part of the "revitalization").

Oslo, Noway.

Last one from Oslo:

Schandorffs square, central Oslo.

I haven't managed to find a before picture, but it was used as a public parking lot with poor quality asphalt and looked generally quite shitty.

This is however how the square currently looks like. The pictures are taken from Archdailys article on the square: http://www.archdaily.com/131713/scha...ngen-bergo-as/
