My name is Silvia and I was born in Linz (capital of Upper
Austria). After I finished school, I lived in the United States
for two years and later went on to study English and Russian
at the Institute for Translation and Interpreting at the University
of Vienna. There I graduated as an "Akademisch geprüfte
Übersetzerin" (3-year translator degree) in the
field of interpreting. For many years now I have been working
as an interpreter for English and as a tourist guide in German,
English, Portuguese and Russian. Many of my guests can personally
feel that I enjoy my work a lot, and it would be a pleasure
for me to be able to show you our capital city as well.
It is a real concern of mine to be able to bring the history
and culture of my country to your knowledge in an informative,
charming and, at the same time, amusing manner. I am convinced
that you won't be bored during my guided tours.
I would be more than happy to take you on any bus or car
ride and/or to take you out on various walking tours.
I can also escort you on your travels through the whole of
Austria as well as neighboring countries, like, for instance,
a trip to Prague or Budapest.
