Just worth noting, Wilanow, one of Poland's prestigious palaces, was not touched during the war and all of its contents are original.

Yes , the historic center of Shkodra in Albania was totally renovated in a nice way . The example of Tirana (the capital) is a little more problematic and different .

Only if they're turning it into a nursery or kindergarten. Otherwise, the colours are too much for me.

Personally, this is a no.
