Kaliningrad is ugly but not the ugliest city in Europe.

Man these revitalizations are honestly poping out like crazy in PL ..... like mushrooms after a good rainfall! Stary Sacz where I am from, the revitalization looks amazing! Can't wait to see it myself in August, especially at night!

I dunno I think there is something wrong with the design - its almost as thought the buildings have no character.

What is wrong with that design? Perhaps it uses too little glass, or abstract shapes?




These are the types of houses people should live in, not these:

Vilnius. Couple of months ago, finnally restored after nearly 10 years of work, church of St. Catherine. Church is now used as a concert hall. Together with the church, Stanislavo Moniuskos (S. Moniuszko) square was also restored. There are atleast 10 more churches though, as beautifull as this one beeing restored right now or still waiting for their time...
