Because of the strategic place the city is situated, the city got more political importance. The courthouse and the Department of Bureaucracy were added to the city in these years. Also the prestigious metroline got 6 more stations and one more line (line 2) was added. This line was the first one that would transfer the passengers to the industrial areas, at the west side of the city. Between this years the prosperity of the city grew a lot. Nevertheless, only the little elite could provide. Also the art began to exist in the city. A famous writer of that time was Igor Janka, who wrote about the city. One of his most famous quotes was: ''Do escapar do li vitçka i li citta do sal, privsk u mort, on muça getar sus lo gruv, wo li plussa bej, si bej cke hime, per tu wrlitçi.'' (To escape of the life in the city of dirtyness, epidemics and death, you should go under ground, where the most beautyful, beautyful like heaven, waits for you). These sentence relate to the huge difference between the very beautiful metrostation, which have cost millions, and the cheap, dirty flats in the city.
