Our full evening program starts with the Hungarian folk dance performance and continues with a Dinner & Cruise program. At night you can admire our exquisite city in all of its illuminated glory.

We promise you an unforgettable evening in a magical, romantic atmosphere!

The cultural traditions of Hungary are unique in the world. There exist only a handful of countries where folk music and dances are being practiced at such a high artistic level. In Hungary, these art forms are treated as an indispensable part of the country’s heritage. It’s easy to see that our culture’s foundations are based on music and movement, which are not only part of our country’s culture, they are part of our lives as well. One of the best ways of getting acquainted with the Hungarian experience is attending a traditional folk dance performance. With our company, you can receive this experience from first hand, from the best and most famous performers in the country! The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and the Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are the country’s most respected dance ensembles with the longest traditions, dating back more than six decades. The groups consist of 30 dancers, and about 20 folk musicians based on the performing groups. With these performances you will experience the most famous, and the lesser known Hungarian and Gypsy dances from all areas of the country. Through them, you can witness the Hungarian cultural heritage!

Every performance starts at 20:00 and consist of two 45 minute long parts with a 10 minute intermission in between. 

After the folklore performance our hostesses will accompany you to the pier. The cruise starts at 22:00 and it always waits for the concert guests.
We will take you on a 1.5 hour long river cruise on one of our heated and air-conditioned ships. You can enjoy a buffet dinner consisting of Hungarian and international specialities, vegetarian foods and many different, delicious desserts, while admiring the one of a kind beauty of Budapest swimming in lights. After dinner you can enjoy the view from the open upper deck of the ship.

The salon music is performed by 3 members of the Zoltán Kodály Awarded Hungária Folk Orchestra, including the world-famous violinist Zsigmond Vidák who was awarded the Bronze Merit Cross of the Hungarian Republic.
