Our Village Church in Rural Hungary

The most common religion in Hungary is Catholicism. More than 54% of the total population consider themselves to be Catholics. Most of them belong to the Latin rite, and about 3% of the population identified themselves as Greek Catholics. Religious minorities in Hungary are Orthodox Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Our village church is a neo-Classical Roman Catholic church built in 1823.  It sits on top of a hill overlooking the surrounding countryside.

The church is reached by climbing many steps, particularly precarious in the winter months.

Interestingly there are engraved memorial stones set in the steps.

There are beautiful landscaped gardens around the church with places for worshippers to sit and appreciate the surrounding nature.

I am an English Ex-Pat living in Hungary with my wonderful husband and gaming-mad teenage son. You can find me frequently writing, reading and taking photographs. We live in a beautiful small rural village surrounded by forests and lakes always appreciating the beauty around us. Life is good.
