If you're referring to me, it's Lviv, Ukraine, population of about 750,000.
Check the previous pages of this thread as well, there are many more pictures!

Great renovations in Poland, Sarajevo! Guys, with these much-needed renovations, soon our cities will rival those of Western Europe!

great choise with the cobblestone type, it looks fabulous

cannot say i'm very excited with the type that was choosen for Vilnius' Town hall square, imho it looks a bit too sterile

and one photo of Didzioji street, just before queen's visit a month ago, by (c)Romas
[img]http://foto.************/inkelti/20061015/IMG_9039.jpg[/img]

some more, very dificult and important restorations ongoing in Vilnius:

virtual panoramas of recently restored square named Stanislavo Moniuškos (S. Moniuszko) and a Baroque/Roccoco church of St. Catherine which was beeing restored/conservated for around a decade, not because of lack of anything, but because of the dificulty of the work... (you have to have QuichTime player for panoramas to work, wait a bit for them to download, the click on a picture and scroll it in whatever direction you like)

square and exterior of the church
http://www.panoramas.lt/panoramos.php?p_id=728&lg=2

interior, the church is now beeing used as a concert hall, since it has one of the best acoustics in whole of Europe (note that interior is not restored but conservated, only a tiny bit of work by one of the Great's of baroque architects - Johan Christof Glaubitz survived)
http://www.panoramas.lt/panoramos.php?p_id=666&lg=2

in this one you can see interior of church of Holly spirit and the biggest and most exquisite baroque organ in Central/Eastern Europe beeing restored
http://www.panoramas.lt/panoramos.php?p_id=107&lg=2

and two interiors for which to restore it will take 15-20 years (every square cm takes days/weeks to restore... we can thank Russians for all of this...):

baroque interior of Franciscan church (most of fresco's are severly damadged but still possible to restore and also some altars survived the "barbarians" and will also be reintegrated to the church)
http://www.panoramas.lt/panoramos.php?p_id=427&lg=2

Church of Bernardine monastery - a unique and only of it's kind whole world, a reinessance fresco's painted in gothic manner, with 12 wooden reinessance style altars, all ~500 years old (just as the ones of above mentioned church. altars are in Vilnius' restoration center facilities, where they are beeing revived to new life)

^ Yea, I agree! The new Vilnius square looks like it's built out of brick, which doesn't give off the old-world feel like cobblestone does.

^ I know, I said it looks like bricks from a distance, because they're all the same colour, size, brick-shape, etc. It just looks too "perfect" and clean to look old-world. It's hard to explain, but I think you know what I mean.

OK I know that most of the revitalizations in this thread are of bigger cities...and of bigger projests, however I wanted to share something with your guys. A town of 8 000 People in south-eastern Poland, close to the Slovak boarded is undergoing a massive revitalization of the whole old town. This town is special to me because it is where I am from and I love it. I was there last August/September and saw how it is changing. You guys can have a look at it yourself....its a nice mountain town....
PS The revitalization is funded by the EU (75% of it)

Photos from October 2006:

I hope you guys don't mind the fact that it is a smaller town, however the project is BIG!

^ The link doesn't work. Just post them in here.

I want to join the EU too, just so they can fund some nice projects in Lviv, like maybe the reconstruction of Vysokiy Zamok?! A guy can hope, can't he?
