east nostalgia in vienna
Our geography-teacher once told us, that on some maps Austria was indicated as a communist state. I think he wanted to frighten us, which did not work out.*
But if You want to enjoy a bit of east-nostalgia right now, simply take tram 62 or 65 from Karlsplatz respectively 6 or 18 from Westbahnhof and take a short trip to 60ies-Vienna: pastel green and yellow as well as grubby brown tiles included. Don’t miss the map of Vienna at Südtirolerplatz!
* I actually was looking for such a map on the web, but when searching “communist countries austria map” I was pointed to Mental map of Austrian security elites (Slilde 17). Frightening, no?
