  Example of a modern complex camouflaged in old
by Pavlik_NL

Mechelen has done a great job in camouflaging new buildings within the old citycentre. Though it was not everywhere successful it still worth a recommendation from my side. In various places the city administration with help of the contracters and construction companies have managed to hide away new buildings (like appartment complexes) in such a way that they do not harm the complete look of Mechelen's magnificent historical inner town.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
