Vienna was considerably a melting pot of the Austria-Hungary Empire.
DEMOGRAPHY: Population in the city grew due to immigration and Vienna became one of the six largest cities in the world in the early 20th century. Despite becoming a city with the second largest Czech population in the world, many Czechs and Hungarians returned to their ancestral countries after the first world war.
Today, the population of Vienna is a mix of different nationalities. Aside from Austrians, nearly half of the population is composed by people from Czech Republic and Serbia. Other people are Turks, Poles and Germans.
LANGUAGE: Although German is mainly used in Vienna, some of the locals speak other languages. Turkish is the language among the ethnic minority. Other languages spoken by ethnic minorities are Slovenian, Croatian, Hungarian, and Serbian. Young people are usually fluent in English.
RELIGION: Vienna has a lot of different religious denominations but the biggest group are Roman Catholics. The rest are Protestants, Muslims, and others.
FASHION: One important thing that you notice in the city is the well-dressed people. In fact, Viennese people are likely to respect others who are nicely attired. They aren’t ultra-conservative but they just prefer that guys don’t show off too much muscle. Also they seem to take on an importance and consideration in how they appear in front of others. Thus perhaps the Viennese know that in order to fit into this good-looking city, they must look good too. This means that they aren’t obsessed with weight or body, but they like getting dressed well.
But for those people who are adventurous, there are designated areas along the Danube River which the Viennese call “FKK” where you can walk around naked, much like being in the Garden of Eden!
