The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble (Budai Vigadó), the Danube Folk Ensemble and Rajkó Folk Ensemble (in the Danube Palace) are three of the best Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition. All three ensembles consist of around 30 artists.
The first ensemble was formed in 1951, and the second ensemble in 1957. 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.
