yes, the "potsdamer stadtschloss verein" (city palace association) is collecting money for the "reconstruction" of all the sculptures.

About 5 years ago, during the construction of the hotel Arena di Serdica in downtown Sofia, they uncovered the remains of an ancient Roman amphitheater. Not much has survived but nonetheless a good part of the foundations remains and the municipality currently wants to (most probably partially) reconstruct the ancient building for its candidacy for the European Cultural Capital in 2019.

There are a few buildings located over the remains of the amphitheater, which would ultimately be torn down in order to make place for the recontruction.

Here is the ad that the municipality has raised up next to the plot. (picture was taken by Bulgariana)





the following pictures is of the remains behind the showed above ad.



Here are some pictures of the remains integrated in the hotel.







А large part of the building is still under the ground, with the southern part being the most promising in terms of preserved remains.

shortly before the bridge was bombed and destroyed


and it is today, almost all of the old town has been reconstructed like it used to be ...there are still some buildings left but hopefully soon they will be reconstructed as well.



here is a recent image, about 75% above was destroyed after 95'
Here is some footage of the destruction of the bridge by artillery:

I've been in Mostar 7 years ago. I remember it very beautiful but new part of town still reminds about a war.

Good news everyone!
In Kaliningrad they had on October 16th a ceremony for the reconstruction of the Neuen Synagoge. A plaquette on a rock is set before the site of the synagoge. But some vandals ruined the plaquette and placed neonazistic stuff on the rock.... idiots



But I have one question:
When do they start the rebuilding of the Kneiphof, Pregelpromenade and the Schlo▀?

No sorry, there was not much information. But it's sure that they're going to rebuild the Synagoge, and with some modern 'touches' of our time. The text was written in German and from around October '11.

Sorry but I have to express my point of view here...there is an historical value and a scientific interest in romans ruins, they cannot build it if not through anastylosis putting together original pieces, UNESCO will be a formidable opponents if this proposals will go any further...
And please, remember that the fact that ruins are not as beautiful as a complete building is just a XX century "disneyan" point of view destined to be very soon forgotten. What you risk here is to destroy very beautiful original roman ruins and obtain a very normal and average stadium...

EDIT:
I correct my point of view: the reconstruction would not be very welcome if made in a material alterating the ruins, like putting heavy stones of marble like in antiquity above ancient stones very ruined and interesting archeologically.
Of course, if the structure of the amphiteater was built, let's say, in wood or in a material certainly not ruining the ancient stones, that would be a very interesting and touristical-friendly operation. I'm sure this operation will go with the second option

I think the reconstruction of the Neuen Synagoge wouldn't be like this. The building is going to be a museum about the Jewish population of Koenigsbergen or something in that direction...But for sure is that they'll rebuild the building on the same site

Bibliotheka Albertina Leipzig University Library, Germany.

The library was founded in 1542 following the Reformation by the then Rector of the university, Caspar Borner, who persuaded Moritz, Duke of Saxony, to donate the property and buildings of the dissolved Dominican friary of St Paul in Leipzig to the university. The library began in one of the monastery buildings with 1,000 books and around 1,500 manuscripts from the stocks of four secularised Leipzig city monasteries and other dissolved monasteries in Saxony and Thuringia.

Bombing in 1943-1945 destroyed two-thirds of the magnificent Neo-Renaissance Bibliotheca Albertina building. The ruins were evacuated and a large fraction of the books escaped destruction, but approximately 42,000 volumes were lost. Currently some are found in collections of Russian libraries.

Meanwhile, also in Kaliningrad Oblast, they're almost finished with the rebuilding of the church of former Arnau.

Pavillon de Marsan, Tuileries/Louvre Palace - Paris

The Palace of Tuileries was burned in 1871 by communards, including Le Vau's Pavillon de Marsan. This one was rebuilt in 1874, with the Pavillon de Flore as model.

Pavillon de Marsan (at left), before 1871 :



After :





Today (rebuilt in 1874) :

Unfortunately, the Palace of Tuileries itself was never rebuilt...

I also saw that a part of the Jewish Quarter was reconstructed on some earlier posts. When will they start with the rebuilding of the Great Synagoge?

There were some messages in the local newspapers around 2002-2003, that after the first stage of the rebuilding of the quarter (finished in 2005), there instantly will start second stage, what when rebuild, will generate some money for the third stage - rebuilding of the most important part of the quarter of the Great Synagogue and surrounding complex of other small synagogues with enclosed yards. Unfortunately even the second stage was delayed (?), but good thing is that last summer they made some archaeological diggings and uncovered some part of the former Great Synagogue, what floor was originally ~2 meters below street level, so after the demolition survived quite well. The Prime Minister said, in some coming years we must somehow mark the place of the former Great Synagogue, but it was not detailed only said that currently we can't rebuild it fully, only mark its place...
Just because of shortage of money...

The first, finished stage. Ašmenos-Dysnos-Mėsinių triangle.
http://binged.it/GWLAU3

Second stage. Lost after the war old 15-18 c. buildings.

here are also some more photos of destroyed parts of Vilnius that hopefully one day will be rebuild http://mylimasvilnius.wordpress.com/...i-nepasigyrus/

Lost quarter (Sirvydo skveras) near Didžioji, Jono, Švarco streets. Second stage.

The third and the most important stage.
