Budapest is the seat of government and the cultural, financial and entertainment capital of Hungary. Historically, it is also the gateway to the West. It is also famous for its festivals, especially over the summer, and if you ask any Budapest denizen what country has the best food, the answer will be Hungary.

“We are really proud of being Hungarians,” says Szusza, an executive of the Church. “Budapest is called the City of Freedom. The most rewarding part of my job is I see people getting better. They can enjoy life. It is not just problems. It can be really fun and there is real freedom they can achieve.”

“When we opened this Church,” says Atilla, “I wanted to personally contribute to extending the help Scientology can offer to the people of Hungary.” He knew this was where anyone could come for “their own spiritual enhancement and a way to help their groups, friends and family.”

“I always had questions I couldn’t get the answer for,” says Ferenc, a TV personality who discovered Scientology just as he was launching his career. He was hired host what soon became a very popular cooking show, where he interviewed grandmothers throughout the country about their favorite recipes. Ferenc credits his applying what he learned from his Scientology courses for the success of his show.  “When you can be happy and free, then you can write the story of your life.”
