Have the original Hungarian experience in one, fulfilling package! Hungarian culture is built on its rich folk heritage that has been created in rural villages for centuries and was nearly impossible to witness for uninitiated eyes. Get a taste from this one of a kind cultural dish in the form of the original Hungarian Folklore Show and feel the origins of Hungary in all of its authenticity by three of the country’s best folk dance and music performers.


Organised in the golden theatre hall of the historically significant Danube Palace in the city centre, the 90 minute show is headlined by three of the country’s most prestigious folk ensembles, the world famous Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Rajkó Folk Ensemble and Orchestra and the Danube Folk Ensemble. With their 30 dancers accompanied by 14 musicians, the ancient culture of Hungary is evoked right in front of your eyes.

After the performance, you will meet your hostess in front of the theatre to be lead on a few minute walk towards the pier where you will embark on a stunning journey throughout the glimmering River Danube.

The 90 minute cruise will reintroduce you to the city’s most amazing sights by the riverbank such as the House of Parliament, the Buda Castle, the Matthias Church and the St. Stephen’s Basilica from a new perspective. Witness the most beautiful bridges of Budapest like the iconic Chain Bridge, the Liberty Bridge and the Elizabeth Bridge, dressed in their night gown of gleaming lights. Please all your senses and sample the most popular dishes of Hungary while being serenaded by talented string musicians from the Rajkó folk ensemble.

The cruise is also available without dining for those who have explored the Hungarian food scene before the program.

Be part of the original Hungarian Experience and let us take your breath away!
