Hungary celebrates its national day on 20 August, marking the foundation of the state and the country’s first Christian king, St. Stephen. Take in the fireworks on your Danube River cruise, and enjoy a Hungarian dinner, an open bar, and live salon music.
What to Expect
Celebrate Hungary’s National Day on 20 August with a special 2-hour Danube river cruise on an air-conditioned ship. Fireworks will be organized on the Europa ship, one of the largest and prettiest event ships on the Danube. The great open deck of the ship grants the perfect view one could wish for on this special occasion. Enjoy dinner prepared by chef Molnárka Péter, along with your favorite drinks from the open bar on board.
Take in Budapest’s biggest event of the year as you watch the fireworks from the upper deck of the ship after dinner.
The cruise begins at around 19:00, and the ship anchors before the fireworks begin.
During the cruise you’ll enjoy salon music performed by 3 members of the Zoltán Kodály, the award-winning Hungária Folk Orchestra, including the world-famous violinist Zsigmond Vidák.
