In 1863 present-day Austria (together with Czechoslovakia, Hungary and parts of Rumania, Yugoslavia, Poland, Italy and USSR) formed part of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, of which Vienna was the capital. The breakup of the Habsburg empire in 1918, the loss of territory of Austria proper to Italy, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia and the addition of the Burgenland from Hungary make any comparisons virtually impossible. The population of Austria in its present frontiers was nearly 4.5m, of which Vienna accounted for almost 900,000.
