Hi I’m Michelle!

My name is Michelle Hrvat, and welcome to the American in Vienna blog! On June 26, 2014, I left the familiar and comfortable of my old life in Connecticut, USA and officially moved to Vienna to marry my Bosnian-born Austrian-citizen, Aldin.

How did this even happen? Well, we met through an online community and our international friends suggested we connect and get to know each other! We clicked and throughout the 2 years of long-distance talk and travel, we decided to get married and live in Europe. To this day, Vienna remains my home 

Why Blog?

I’ve visited so many great places, ate such good food, had insights about myself and the European culture – I HAD to create a blog and share my findings with the world.  When I find something interesting and recommendable, I can’t keep it in – I have to share it with others – so this blog is dedicated to all things Vienna from my perspective – an American living abroad 🙂

More About Me:

  • I love yoga, baking, traveling, and dining out (foodie at heart). I am a homebody, and you can usually catch me reading on my terrace during a warm, sunny day, or binge-watching a series on Netflix.
  • Did you know I am the creator/founder of the highly popular Facebook group Women of Vienna ? Yeah, it’s kind of crazy. Watch this video to hear my story.

  1. Michelle,
    My wife and I recently visited Vienna to see if we could locate the grave of my great grandfather. We had found a paper with the information on his location amid some very old papers left by my grandfather. The old Jewish section in the Central Cemetery is in very sad shape but through much effort, we were able to locate it. It was very emotional.

    After I returned home to Philadelphia, it occurred to me that I would like to know if there was any way I could take care of it into the future. But I forgot to ask them and there is no contact information on the cemetery site. Is there any way you can help?

    Thank you very much.
