I like the work in Tbilisi. First their iconic Road Ministries building was brought back to life, now they saved the historic center. Hope they keep this up!

It's true.

The castle and square above look great, especially considering Krasnystaw's size.

I actually think they should have used more grass for the park.

It's an urban square in a small town, I am sure the amenity of greenspace is otherwise widely available.
