For visually impaired

The building giving space for former Borostyán Pharmacy had stood empty for years in Albertfalva street, the 11th district of Budapest. On Christmas of 2017 this changed. Salva Vita Foundation received the news that its application won the grant launched by THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS in Denmark, making possible to purchase the property. With joint effort, we have set up Szeglet Community & Experience Space here.

Szeglet is much more than just a venue for events. Beside the services provided by the café and conference rooms a unique gastro kitchen suitable for cooking together, organizing team building events also available. The Community & Experience Space is operated and managed by Salva Vita Foundation, whose main profile is supporting disabled people finding a job on the free labour market. Employing enabled persons at the small companies operating in Szeglet is a key element also of the Community & Experience Space’s social responsibility.
