Thien is named among top 50 successful women: Hungarian magazine 

This comes after the publication released an article about Thien, hailing not only her success in business, but also her contributions to connecting Asian and European culture.

Along with her various business successes, Thien, who is head of the Association of Vietnamese women in Hungary, also actively participates in social activities.

As a chairwoman of the Vietnam-Hungary Relationship Foundation, Thien has made great efforts to mobilise and build a Vietnam - Hungary friendship monument in Paks city of Tona province.

The monument was inaugurated back in 2010 to mark the occasion of the 1,000th anniversary of Thang Long - Hanoi.

Successful Women magazine releases an article about Thien.

Thien, 56, was born in Hanoi before moving to Russia in 1986 to study for a Ph.D. in economics. She then went to Hungary with her husband in 1998 after a financial crisis hit her wholesale Asian food trading business in Russia.

Things started to change for the better in 2002 when Thien and her husband decided to buy the Fried Castle, which had been built by Imre Fried, a leather footwear magnate.

Situated in the town of Simontornya, located 120 km from the capital Budapest, it is a restored old castle which boasts 50 rooms and its 19 hectares of grounds include a park, a zoo, vineyards, and a wine cellar.

Since making the purchase, her hotel has attracted a huge number of foreign tourists.

This comes after Thien has also appeared on the cover of the Hungarian magazine in 2020 for leading her business out of a COVID-induced slump.

A couple of years ago she had also been named as one of the 50 most successful women entrepreneurs by Hungarian Businesswomen magazine.
