Sadly they let buildings become ruins
August 7, 2017 5:46am CST
One thing that bothers me very much and saddens me is when governments don't invest in heritage sites and architectural gems of a country. It's much easier to leave buildings in a state of decay than to renovate them and promote tourism. For example, the photo I have attached is an old palace residence, which once belonged to a famous noble family, before the communists confiscated everything and left it in ruins. Even 27 years after communism, they are only doing the bare minimum to upkeep the place even though many tourists come to visit! This really annoys me because, if renovated, the old mansion would be lovely to visit.

It looks like a good place where to build a clinic or school, if they don't want to make it a tourist spot. The situation is pretty bad here too, they prefer to start new buildings where there used to be fields or forests instead of renewing old decaying places. That also happens with places that could be turned into nice (maybe luxury) apartments. But once they confiscate and put the buildings on sale, none wants to invest on them. They should lower the prices or add incentives, I think.
