Hey guys! Another Saturday, another question to r/europe! Two weeks ago, we asked you academic experience. This week, what about your own country!

Notice that while this is r/europe, it's fine if you talk about a country that is not from Europe.

Todays topic:

The Austro-Hungarian Empire

The Austro-Hungarian Empire was a multinational state that once dominated Central Europe during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. At its peak the empire stretched from the Alps of Austria to the coast of Dalmatia and from the forests of Bohemia to the edge of the Carpathian basin. Until its dissolution in 1918 after its defeat in World War I, the Empire was a thriving if messy behemoth equally full of a Babylon's worth of languages and dialects and rich cultural treasures. While German and Hungarian were the dominant languages, the state was also home to people speaking a host of Slavic languages from Czech to Croatian, Romance languages - especially Romanian, but also Italian, and some other languages including Yiddish. The rich culture of the empire, including beautiful architecture, iconic classical music, and a rich literary thesaurus continues to live on even today in the states that have succeeded the empire.


So, what do you know about The Austro-Hungarian Empire?
