Communists did a lot of bad things all over Eastern/Central Europe not just Legnica and Jelenia Gora. Despite the housing shortages in Warsaw, for example, they still managed to find the labour to destroy what was standing because it was elegant and bourgeois...not nearly as bad as what Germans did, but in that context stupid and barbaric.

Communists found the time to turn hundreds of nice buildings into this (on the right, one of left was restored recently):

What was done to German cities after the war was such a crime! They were once so beautiful. And now look at some of them! Very sad!

Stuttgart ( as many other cities ) had massive destruction during the war - 53 air attacks, - on 12 of sept. 1944 75 heavy airmines 4.300 Bombs and 180.000 Flamebombs hit the city in one night.

even 1955 the new castle apears in that way :

link for more

Living quarters was more needed than castles and history.

now the new castle looks fine, itīs the same place as above facing backwards

Note, that only the face of this building is reconstruted, only a few rooms inside are also reconstructed.

I would say Ypres is the most amazing example!

Malbork (Marienburg) castle demolished by soviet artillery in 1945:

The National Theatre In Bucharest, Romania

Built in 1852, it was totally destroyed by the Luftwaffe bombardment, on Aug.24, 1944. A different building was later built in a different location, to to host the new National Theatre.
The Novotel Hotel, built in 2006, replicates the exterior of the old Romanian National Theatre approximately in its original location.

interesting effort, but the interface between old and new isn't great. It looks a bit ridiculous!

My thoughts exactly. Not the best combination. I just posted this building, because, thanks to Novotel architects, the facade of the old theatre reappeared on the historic Victoriei Avenue, after more than 60 years of absence. Considering the architecture of the whole avenue, it is much better, than just a plain glass cladding.
Seeing it "live" though, doesn't look that bad at all, especially because, when standing in front of it, you can see in the glass the reflection of another beautiful old hotel, which is on the opposite side of the street.

That example from Bucharest is disgusting, sorry to say. Showing how tasteless and free of any talent modern architects & planners are in contrast to pre-WWII ones.

Like Dresden, the reconstructions after WWII are not very nice.

^ What the heck are you talking about? The reconstruction of Ypres is nothing but exceptional.

I like the Ypres reconstruction. Totally on par with the original.

I agree. It must've been one of the largest secular medieval buildings to survive into the 20th century.

^ In fact it was. I can't think of an even larger one at least.

I didn't even know that Malbork was destroyed. And that todays appearance is actually pretty simplified.

The 20th c rebuilding of the destroyed Cloth Hall in Ypres is one of the finest examples of reconstruction of a famous landmark and a perfect argument against those people who say such buildings should not be replaced with original designs, the majority of visitors to this city have no idea that the original was completly destroyed in WW1 such is the quality of the replacement.
