Agree, no comparison....but give us another 20 years to pave more and more of the "good stuff" and lock away the rest for "recreational use".

It sure is a crying shame. Saw the same thing in/ around Stralsund last year....and even more so in the Balkans.
Some beautiful workmanship and unique features just rotting into the ground, most likely never to be seen again.

Keep traveling, mate....this is something special.
