Multicultural Heritage

Expand your cultural horizons

Located at the crossroads of America, the St. Louis region has enjoyed influences from numerous races and nationalities. Early immigrants included settlers from Germany, Italy, Ireland and Poland, and today’s population includes new arrivals from Bosnia, Ethiopia, Africa, Asia, Latin America and throughout Europe.

St. Louis is proud to be a melting pot, as people from all over the world have settled in the Gateway City and incorporated a myriad of cultural traditions into the diverse fabric of the region.
