A whole evening programme starting with a Hungarian folk dance performance and continuing with dinner & cruise.
What to Expect
Enjoy a whole evening program, starting with a Hungarian folk dance performance and continuing with a dinner and cruise. In the evening maybe you can’t prove if Mr. Strauss was right with his color of Danube, but you will have a wonderful view on the illuminated Budapest and enjoy an unforgettable evening with a romantic candlelight atmosphere.
There are not many countries aside from Hungary, where the art of folk-dancing is at such high artistic level. There is even a college for studying Hungarian folk dances.
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble, and Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are 3 of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition, which have performances all around the country and abroad.
All 3 ensembles consist of 30 artists. Their choreographies are based on authentic dances. Some of them were collected in isolated villages and date back hundreds of years. Through the performed dances you can get a broad view of the music, dance and costume heritage of Hungary and the Hungarian inhabited areas.
After the folklore performance, a host or hostess will escort you to the pier.
On the ship, you can feel Budapest's romantic atmosphere surrounded by the friendly lights of the Danube capital and enjoy a warm and excellent buffet-dinner.
As you eat, you will be taken on a 1.5-hour-long cruise on an air-conditioned ship. In the romantic candlelight atmosphere you can enjoy the wonderful view of Budapest swimming in light. After dinner you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.
