About me - Helena Svedova from www.BRNOguide.webs.com


I was born in Brno, the Czech Republic and grew up hiking, cycling and skiing in the surrounding countryside. This web site gradually grew out of my acquaintance with ex-pats and visitors for whom I translated the language and local culture. I also run other web page offering various trips  www.BRNOguide.webs.com and www.czech4you.com

Having lived and worked 7 years in Canada, (volunteered in JASPER and YOHO NP, Alberta), travelled widely in Europe, Canada, the USA and New Zealand, I understand very well how daunting an unfamiliar culture and language can be at first. So my hope is that I can be a "cultural bridge" and make Brno and the area that I love so much a bit more accessible to you who might otherwise think that the Czech Republic was only Prague.

I enjoy travelling, painting and volunteering, creating web pages . I am also on TRIPADVISOR listed as BRNOguide.

I teach English and part time work for company building modular houses www.makehome.biz

I will be happy to meet you in person...
