Home is where Inima ta is

Understanding Vienna means understanding all the cultures that make up this diverse city. Vienna is home to people from over 180 nations. Metropole gives them a voice.

Every month we will focus on each community in a stand-along print publication accompanied by videos, online articles, social media takeovers and fun-filled events with delicious food.
