About the project
Interactive Ukrainian Vienna
Interactive Ukrainian Vienna is an online archive of Ukrainian Vienna and Austria.
The archive was created to document the Ukrainian history of Vienna and Austria, and especially:
- Important historical events and dates
- Monuments, memorial tables,
- Graves, etc.,
starting from the available information (around the 16th century) to the present day.
The online archive includes interactive map and thematic tours of Ukrainian Vienna (musical, culinary, artistic, in the footsteps of famous writers, lawyers, politicians, artists, etc.).

The project is initiated by TUMA (Association of Ukrainian Youth in Austria).
