Cultural Relations and Greek Community

The presence of Greeks in Austria is of historical significance and dates to the 18th century, with prominent figures including Rigas Feraios, Anthimos Gazis, Neophytos Doukas and the Ypsilantis, Sinas and Dumba families. Today, the Greeks residing permanently in Austria are graduates of Austrian universities and number some 5,000, half of whom are Greek citizens. Greek-Austrian friendship associations operate in Austria’s main cities.
