Sarajevo Homes from the Austrain Period

Much of the beauty of Sarajevo comes from the various "layers" of architecture.  And it helps that a human brain can edit out the crap to see the beauty.  I will show you what I mean with a few pictures.
.
This is kind of a bland picture from a distressed house on one of the busy man streets.
.
But if you focus on the ornamentation (like your brain can) - you see this....
Gorgeous.
.
Or this ..
Kind of possibly cool.  But your brain can focus on the beauty!
.
And you see this....
Yes - those are bullet holes from the war.  It hasn't been redone, but people still live there.
.
And there is this kind of Norma Desmond house.
"It's not me; it's the STREETS that got small.
.
Even this odd little building that was part theater, part housing.
Look at the detail of the base of this(ex-)university?  / housing complex.
.
Then there are these 2 un-refurbished homes that I LOVE, right off the old town area.
