From Empire to Republic
It has been a century since the Habsburg Empire was dissolved. In the fall of 1918, the Empire disintegrated into nation states, many of them newly independent republics. The book you are about to hold in your hands tells their story.
In honor of the first republic’s centennial in 2018, Metropole embarked on a year-long reportage project. We cooperated with news outlets and individual journalists from all across Central and Eastern Europe.
Working together across borders, cultures and languages, we collected photos, interviews and first-hand experiences, resulting in this unique compendium “From Empire to Republic” of Central Europe as it has evolved over the last one-hundred years. As Emperor Franz Joseph would have said:
“Es war sehr schön, es hat mich sehr gefreut.”
(It’s been a pleasure.)
