I'm not here to rain on Poland's parade or anything, but the scale of revitalization projects in the Baltics is just as massive (if not more) as in Poland, it's just that Poland's much bigger and hence has more such examples to show for.

I absolutely love it when commieblocks are turned into stylish, classical buildings! Or at least repainted...

I don't like that purple colour.

I wish more Romanian cities would have reconstructions. I see so many collapsed/decayed old buildings in my city that need to be revived.

Bad taste depicted, really.

Btw... English still is the language of the international forums here. We won't tolerate any further (partly) French posts.

There are many houses which are repainted in these shrill(garish) colors! But in reality, that makes rather good (you can go to see(visit) on Google map, it is a little more real than these photos)
Another example near the beach :

Eglise Sainte-Cecile, Le Havre, France
(Place de la Liberté)

Le Havre ain't a Caribbean town. What's going on with the people there? Horribly garish stuff, really.

It has been more than two centuries since houses are painted by color in France, it is just that you have just learnt it certainly...
