The most important reconstruction work in Serbia for the moment. The reconstruction of the Golubac fortress at the entrance of the Danube's Iron gate.

The reconstruction work include the relocation of a magistral road with a new tunnel and a construction of the visitor center.

Shoot me, but I dont think they should reconstruct that castle. The ruins look great, and by reconstructing the castle it looks less old and even fake...

They also build a tunnel for the cars to go right of the castle.
Current road is right through it. Drove there 5 years ago, quite an impressive castle...

But they're really reconstructing just a smaller section of the castle that was mostly demolished in the 1960's when the road was built.
The rest is actually renovation work and adding the wooden roof construction on the towers.

It was my first thought too but after looking at these pictures closer it seemed to me that actually there is nothing too radical in this project. Cleaning walls and towers of trees which destroy them and protecting them with historically accurate roofs is quite reasonable. The only thing that might seem "too much" is rebuilding that wall along the river but if it was destroyed not long ago and there is enough evidence left - why not?

But yes, in projects like this there is always some risk of making the object look "fake". I hope this won't be the case in this one.

It would look fake if they cut out windows and put uPVC frames in, put 3 giant stars on it and call it a hotel, and clad the roof in asphalt tile.

Fits right in here and contrary to many of the projects shown in here this one is really reconstructed from scratch, no partial reconstruction or restauration.

Embassy of the Czech Republic in Belgrade was originaly built as embassy of Czechoslovakia to Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1930s by the plans of Alois Mezera.



Czech embassy few years ago:



Building was renovated, and the original coat of arms of the First Czechoslovak Republic was restored on its place:

The old use of 'reconstruction' which was kind of synonymous to renovations/revitalizations in anglophone and Eastern European countries is still wide-spread... But people should be able to distinguish them nowadays, at least in an architecture forum! Make an effort to get behind basic architectural terms, everyone, thanks.
