Thats true. Many wooden gothic spires did not had a long lifetime due to storms (especially due to the location not far from the coast) and lightnings. When gothic architecture was very popular in historistic times many gothic churches in Germany without a spire or with one from baroque times, got back a gothic one because of a neo-gothic restoration.

I believe there were even no sources how the gothic spire looked like, and building neo-gothic spires could be controversial decision indeed, especially in late XX century. Anyway...

Looks amazing on the outside. It's just so sad that the extraordinary vault frescoes were not recreated though; such a loss!

I suppose they were added in the 19th century. They look way too good preserved to be original gothic.

After the October revolution of 1917 palaces were turned into museums (1918). During the Second world war Petrodvorets was occupied by German troops (1941-1944). Before their arrival managed to evacuate more than 8 thousand items of decoration of palaces and about 50 statues. However, Peterhof was almost completely destroyed by fascist artillery.

Isn't Buda Castle a 1950-60's creation anyway? I remember reading many of the motifs included in the current building were socialist based.

Buda Castle was heavily bombed during WWII and reconstructed in a much simpler way afterwards. Much of the roof and dome ornaments were not reconstructed and there's nothing left of its former grand interiors, unfortunately.

But there are current plans to bring, at least, the outside ornaments back. Not sure about the interiors though.

Check the Hungarian Forum, there's a thread dedicated to the subject there!

Just to illustrate how bad the situation was after WW2:

When I saw the pictures of Buda Castle I thought it was a reconstruction, as supposed in this topic. But when I looked on Google Streetview, in my opinion, they're more renovating the castle then reconstructing it...Still, it looks really good!

The dormers suck a little bit... but nice reconstruction overall. Do you have any photos of how it used to look like prior to its destruction?
