Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in Vienna

The nature and culture of the locals are rather contradictory. There are really many jokes about the 'dissatisfaction with life’, which is so common for Austrians. Locals often make fun of themselves because of their eternal "moaning". Nevertheless, local people love life and are able to enjoy it in all its forms. Tourists, who came to Vienna, are captured by the unique festive atmosphere right from the arrival.

Besides public holidays Vienna is full of various national celebrations. As a rule, they are accompanied by magnificent balls and colorful fireworks. Among the national celebrations there are many religious holidays, during which locals usually visit friends and give gifts to each other. During the memorial days of saints people usually give each other beautiful editions of the Bible, prayer beads and other religious attributes, as well as decorations for home. Pastries and chocolate are considered traditional gifts. During the days of celebrations the city’s streets are turned into great fairs. Perhaps, Catholic Epiphany, which is celebrated annually on January 6, is the most famous religious holiday. The National Day of the Republic of Austria is a favorite national holiday, which is celebrated with grand scale on October 26.
The indifferent attitude of locals to coffee has also become a notable feature of Vienna. You will surely see numerous coffee shops during your walk on the streets of Vienna. They have long become the most favorite place of rest for the local people. On evenings and during the lunchtime the locals gather on terraces of cozy cafes and enjoy the flavorful drink. Some coffee shops have nothing similar with the establishments that can be seen in other cities. These are unique "oases of comfort" with soft chairs and elegant marble tables. You can easily spend hours in these peaceful and cozy cafes.
