Elefant & Castle

Local Hero Silvia Volavšek from Elefant & Castle

The queen of curries about nirvana and a place where time stands still.

In our portrait series "Local Heroes" Silvia gives us an insight into her personal Vienna.

Elefant Castle - Boutique Hotel Altstadt Vienna

What do you like about the area? Why are you in the 7th district?

The 7th district is casual, comfortable, a bit provincial, not too big, not too small, diverse, has nice people, beautiful old buildings, stunning backyards and lovely streets.

What can one buy in your store? What is your passion behind it?

Elefant & Castle loves what you eat! 
We offer homemade curry, soups, sandwiches and sweets on a daily basis.

Only in Vienna

I received a call from a police man, after our shop window had been broken: "Your complaint has gone to Nirvana, so to speak, o to speak, until we find someone to take care of it."

Better somewhere else

The Viennese are not the friendliest folk, I guess that's better somewhere else.

Sweet Vienna

Hazelnut ice cream and apricot ice cream dumplings at famous ice cream parlor Tichy.
Or a Danish pastry at Vienna's pinkest coffee house Aida.

Hearty Vienna

A visit at the Würstelstand in the middle of the night can be quite an experience.

When it gets dark

You are still safe on the streets of Vienna...

Not in any tourist guide

I would recommend a LUUPS Vienna Book - a guide including vouchers for restaurants, shops and other attractions.

Your favorite place

My home is my castle. And Elefant&Castle, of course.


Bellaria Kino. An old cinema, where time stands still.

You can skip, although in the guide

I would say a Fiaker tour (horse and carriage).

What do you love about the city?

Wien, Wien, nur du allein, sollst stets die Stadt meiner Träume sein...

(Vienna, Vienna, only you should be the city of my dreams...famous Viennese song)
