  • Danube panorama and fireworks from boat
  • Dinner with delicious hungarian and international courses

Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities of the world, according to a New York Times article and millions of tourists from all around the globe. What makes it so special and different from the rest of the big European cities, is its various architecture and the oppositions in the city itself. During the celebrations the amazing fireworks above the river create an image of true beauty. Take part in a romantic cruise before the fireworks including a delicious open buffet dinner with various traditional Hungarian dishes and unlimited drink consumption included to enjoy the holiday event in complete comfort! Our program takes you on a 2 hours long romantic ship cruise down the Danube showing you the magnificent sights from the river, along with Live Music entertainment, the ship anchors during the fireworks, then returns to the pier.

Did You know?
Stephen has always been considered one of the most important statesmen in the history of Hungary. His main achievement was the establishment of a Christian state that ensured that the Hungarians survived in the Carpathian Basin. His right hand is still kept in the largest church of the capital, the St. Stephen’s Basilica.

The meals on our boats are prepared by Chef Molnárka Péter, including various hungarian dishes, cold entries, international favourites, vegatarian meals, desserts and much more. A perfect choice to try out most of the local dishes while listening to live gipsy music entertainment by three members of the rightfully renowned Rajkó Folk Orchestra.

I came here several years ago to see the fireworks and I had an excellent view of the city: the center as well as the North and South of the city. Looking forward to see the celebration again.

The best time to cruise the Danube is after dark in order to appreciate the city and bridges when illuminated. Must be even better with the fireworks!

I hope my young ones won’t be scared of the noise, but I am hoping that the view will turn their attention away. Can’t wait!
