Saddly in Romania the situation is completely different, and our historical monuments are left to die...

Poland continues to amaze me. Are the reconstructions (for example in Chocianów) paid from the local budget, or by private developers?

stunning bridge, I thought this was somewhere in Croatia, and it reminds me a little of Charles Bridge in Prague. Nice

Poland has many faces and yes - it looks like a small version of Charles Bridge in Prague.

Saddly, it's only one of a few reconstructed buildings in Elbląg (former Elbing in Prussia) and in general in case of old town in Elbląg it's called "retroversion" - creating a new architecture without using old forms, but in the old shape and horizontal structure. This one was called "House of the Kings" because of being a quarter of every crowned head visiting Elbing, so it has been reconstructed together with neighbouring two rennaisance houses as a four-star hotel.

Yes, I've noticed that most of the "reconstruction" of the old town has produced some strange hybrids... unfortunately...

But this one is a true gem; they should all be reconstructed like this!

Are there any plans to reconstruct the waterfront? It was lovely before the war.

Totally agree.
The local plan for development of the old town district has been changed recently, and, among other things, the new conception assume the rebuilding of waterfront as well, but nothing more accurately is known yet. The rebuilding process is proceeding very slowly towards the river, and for sure it's a matter of about 20-30 years untill the waterfront will rise.
