I wonder why Prague's Old Town isn't deserted then!

Seriously, no jokes: we have discussed how "Old Dresden" was becoming uninhabitable. I even posted a link to some info on Paul Wolf, who was in the process of 'sanitizing' much of Dresden-Altstadt before WW2 intervened and did what it did. We have gone to-and-fro about how reconstructing the Neumarkt historically would never work.

SO
What about Prague's Old Town?

the difference is that they used traditional technologies, but I think Dresden's recons may function better. Warsaw's old town is gradually being adapted for ground floor retail that will add vitality.

Didn't the pavilions on the front of the Cosel survive the bombing? I have seen post-war photographs where they were still standing.
Did they tear those down or restore them until the rest of the palace was rebuilt?

Some of the pavillion's walls did survive the bombings and were incorporated in the new building.

Oh, this is so wonderful. Dresden is quickly becoming one of the world's most beautiful cities again.

I was there is 2006 and it was already quite wonderful - and so much has been done since then. And even more will be done in the future!

That's what it looked like in the early 90s:

I had a beer in the courtyard of this building, it's quite nice from a distance but sitting up close it looked a bit cheap.

^ the finishes (the quality of the stucco, the windows - they looked like inexpensive vinyl). Just my personal opinion.

The reconstruction of Dresden is overall a triumph, no doubt about that. My main criticism is that it all looks to "perfect" at the moment but I know time will take care of that as it has done in the Warsaw reconstruction of the old town. A few more signs on the buildings (not too many and no plastic) would also help.

Better to have it "too perfect" than to have nothing.
But yes, just give it 20 years or less.
