About the Event
Indulge in fine dining and listen to live music, while enjoying unique views of the Budapest panorama on a cruise with music on the Danube!
In Budapest, the mighty Danube River runs majestically through the center of the city, creating a panorama which was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site list for its aesthetic and historic value.
Experience the views on a dinner cruise with live performance of popular classical melodies. The program combines a romantic candlelight dinner with a concert on the Danube Cruise Ship. The live music is provided by four members of the award‐winning Rajkó Folk Orchestra playing local and international favourites. The band includes a truly special Hungarian virtuoso folk instrument, the cimbalom to bring that extra uniqueness into the atmosphere.
After the concert, you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.

The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble (Budai Vigadó), the Danube Folk Ensemble and Hungária Folk Orchestra and Ensemble (in the Danube Palace) are three of the best Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition. Each ensemble consists of about 30 artists.
The first ensemble was formed in 1951, and the second ensemble in 1957. Their choreography is based on authentic dances. Some were collected in isolated villages and date back hundreds of years. The dances offer a broad view of the music, dance, and costume heritage of Hungary and the Hungarian inhabited areas.

The musicians were great and interacted well with the audience. They went to every table and took requests. The dinner was also very good

Interesting way to see the monuments along the Donau, with a good dinner and the Gipsy musik.
