Can you guys stop with the photo spam? Seriously, it takes 15 minutes for the 213 photos to load. One or two photos are enough to show the progress.

O.M.G!!! Doesn't this look amazing? It was such a mess before, with overgrown weeds and sh*t. Now it looks great!
And look at the cobblestone mosaic patterns!
We can see how the tracks turned out, and I think they're much better now. It all just looks cleaner and nicer.

and now


general wiev of street after reconstruction (reconstructions are still ongoing on far end of this street, it's rather long, ~2km street in central Vilnius)

photo from www.mad.lt


if someone 5 years ago would be showing this picture and saying that it's Vilnius, he would'v been taken for a mad man...

Thanx for the fantastic photos both from Lviv and Vilnius

I cross my fingers for all cities in our region

Our cities are at least as beautiful as western - all we need is some more revitalization



that looks excellent



that must be very important project for Vilnius - now it looks like some kind of small old town square - nice job

Budapest

Here is a pdf file called "And our houses were reborn" from the www.budapest.hu website. It is in both English and Hungarian, so you will have no problems reading it. Has dozens of before and after pictures and shows you typical Budapest architecture.
