I just found some new pics from Flickr (Thanks to Johan)showing the magnitude of recent renovation in Lviv. It's really tremendous! Take a look yourselves!

They laid new tracks for the trams, and still kept the cobblestone. I'm sure it'll look much better when they sweep. Ignore the ... uh ... nice pregnant lady.


Tracks looking much better:



It's her again:


They're not quite finished here. Oh, and it's not Africa, lady, get the kid off your back!





This is Britney Spears in 5 years.


After all this crap is gone, it will look great!


And buildings are being renovated too!

Oh damn, this thread is perfect for a bunch of Bosnian cities damaged from the war, and now reconstructing. I can't believe I haven't looked inside until today.

It's not to late Mimica, it seems like Polish revitilizations dominate this thread, but other countries can do it aswell. Go ahead; I would like to see how Bosnia has improved since that terrible war.
(The ones of Poland are needless to say, beautiful)

Not exactly Lviv, just centre. Outer areas like Sykhiv still are full of ugly commies.

Don't be a smartass. When I say Lviv, I'm talking about the historical centre. That's what I care about. Who cares about the rest? All cities have their slums and commievilles. Ever been to Brooklyn?

I'll be sure to post some pictures of Bosnia's reconstruction, but I don't have the time right now. Once I find some extra time to relax, I'll be sure to do it.
