I like it but those orange things (don't know the name in english) in the balconies ruin it.

I think they went with an era-correct colour scheme, when yellow and orange was everywhere.

Why do old buildings always look better on old pics rather than new pics? Even if the building is in a good shape today, it looks better in older photos

^well because they are new, firstly. Communist economy meant pretty much everywhere that once something was built, it was then left to decay without any help.

Secondly, for such projects, they are also part of larger ensembles that are completely lacking in clutter (cables, AC machines, ads, and all sorts of invasive interventions), like we now can't see them. Clutter ruins the aesthetic experience of architecture and urban tissue A LOT.

Residential building in the small city of Berovo, Macedonia. According the architecture of the building, it looks like it was built somewhere in the 1980's. The frontal part (the one with the red roof), probably was some department or grocery store, but today looks abandoned or at least empty.

They removed the "copper" windows


Well actually despite being a listed building it was practically demolished during this renovation, only parts of the concrete sceleton are really original.
