Yeah, somehow a bit more pleasing kitsch is replacing an ugly concrete dump...

If they were sticking to the rules of classical architecture in Skopje they could create amazing things, but they're building a tasteless fantasy land.

Chemnitz, Germany: Early, classical socialist architecture

Some very calm and mostly well-done early socialist (traditionalist) architecture of the 1950s in Chemnitz in Saxony, Germany.

This kind of architecture is called "Nationale Tradition der DDR" (GDR). All shown examples are heritage protected!
