More About Austria
I visited Austria on a day trip drive from the Czech Republic in 2023. I spent the day exploring the enchanting city of Vienna and was blown by the captivating blend of history, architectural wonders and cultural treasures contained in this lovely city.
Vienna, with its population of around 2 million people, boasts a remarkable 25% of the country’s total inhabitants. The city was designed with a bigger city/region in mind which therefore creates an expansive and welcoming atmosphere for visitors. There are numerous cultural attractions in Vienna, including opera houses, galleries and museums. The city’s homage to Mozart, who lived there for a decade, is evident through numerous dedications across the charming streets.
While German is the primary language, approximately three-quarters of the population speak English proficiently, ensuring ease of communication for international visitors. Austrians, known for their helpful nature, enhance the overall travel experience with their welcoming attitude.
