  Border of the mini Republic
by mel_bee

Edwin Lipburger, a rather eccentric artist founded this mini republic in 1984 in the Prater Park not far from Vienna's big wheel. When he first created the Kugel Mugel in Lower Austria, he ended up in prison. He even made his own stamps, refused to pay Austrian taxes and had an Embassy in Vienna. Take the U1 to Prater to learn more about this fascinating story.
