To the Editor,

Metropole has been a very welcome gain to my monthly reading list. I am always looking forward to reading the very well-edited issues that explore topics in such a way that after reading the magazine I feel like I have been given a very positive and refreshing perspective on my environment. I love the young and positive spirit of the magazine and hope it will continue like this for a long time!

To the Editor,

I would like to say thank you for the fantastic work of your team! Metropole has a wonderful way of writing about Vienna and telling the stories of its people. I also appreciate your magazine so much because it helps me to be a part of the Viennese society, thanks to all the great events you are covering. Keep up the good work!

To the Editor,

I very much enjoyed the Jul./Aug. profiles because they had a wonderful way of picturing Vienna through the eyes of the three artists. In particular, I was very happy to read about Yuri Revich, whom I much appreciate. It takes a certain courage to leave your country and try your luck in a city where the only language you can communicate through is music.

I never made a mistake in my life; at least, never one that I couldn’t explain away afterwards.
