Today, Vienna is one of the best cities in the world to live in. In a number of rankings, it usually takes the top spot, but always somewhere on the podium. A well-developed system of flat rentals, six underground lines, a developed labour market, as well as a lot of greenery and excellent museums - all of these attest to the city's rank today. Prosperity can also be seen in the period at the end of the third wave of the pandemic - every few hundred metres in the very centre you can take a free coronavirus test.

The journalist and writer Joseph Roth captured the atmosphere of the winter of 1918 and the spring of 1919 in a series of newspaper columns. Describing the man of those times, he noted that he was a person "in shock with a broken back". Vienna was not only ill, but also starving.
