Speaking of Eastern Europe…….but is’nt it full of architectural gems …despite the ravishes of both World Wars and the subsequent communist regimes. Was’nt it sad to see the beautiful city of Prague flooded on TV, the beautiful Cathedrals, public buildings, squares and appartments under a biblical deluge. ….(not forgetting but Budapest is a gem too……The Austro-Hungarian Empire to thank in a way I suppose),and to add ….see Munich recently there under a deluge while it hosted the European athletics but yet it still looked very pretty too…….unlike dreary auld Dublin on a wet day……maybe cause many of their buildings as well as being architecturally pretty are painted in bright summer colours……ie yellow ochre , terracotta, egg shell blue…..etc……
We recently painted our auld pebble dashed suburban gaff there a yellow ochre colour ….it looked so great that even the neighbours followed suit….and it has brightened up the whole neighbourhood…..well when you consider some of them had their homes painted black….anything would be an improvement.
