yeaah I was this September in Sarajevo and I was shocked how in well condition city is now. It's really hard to notice any serious damages. It's kept very well. I liked the Museum of Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand despite it's rather small one.

Splendid. Now some new pavements and maybe a pedestrian boulevard along the river and Sarajevo's center would look breathtaking.

Lubiaz Abbey in Lower Silesia, Poland.
The abbey, established in 1175, is one of the largest Christian architectural complexes in the world (biggest in Europe). Since 1989, the abbey has been under renovation, mostly through donation money. This is world class craftsmanship.


































The roof has been done already.

The present day opera house, the Opéra Municipal de Marseille, dates from its opening on 4 December 1924. It seats 1,800. It features a classic urn-shaped auditorium, three rings of boxes, two balconies and a gallery. A large sculpted frieze by sculptor Antoine Bourdelle frames the stage.

Designed by the three architects Ebrard, Castel, and Raymond, the theatre preserved the stone colonnade and, located the surviving original box office in the centre of the entrance hall, up from which led two staircases to the elegant main foyer. Beauvert describes it as "an Art Deco temple", the "soul mate" of the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris.
It is nowadays the second biggest Art Deco Opera house in the world at the Opera of Mexico City.

Lubiaz Abbey is truly splendid. Do you know when renovation is expected to be largely finished? Or when at least the exterior will be restored again?

Nonetheless, I seriously doubt that this is the largest "Christian architectural complex" in Europe.

I think even in Poland there are larger Christian architectural complexes, like Jasna Góra sanctuary, or (ugly as hell) Licheń.

According to Wikipedia it is one of the largest

Work continues on this building but it is funded through donations. It will be many years before it's all done. The roof has been restored.

Anyways, it has become a significant tourist destination. Each year in early June, Festival of alternative culture takes place here.
