Folk Performance, Dinner & Cruise
Website: Book on the official website!
Fee: 54,50€- 127,00€Whole evening program. Starts with the Hungarian folk dance performance and continues with the Dinner & Cruise. On the evening maybe you can’t prove if Mr. Strauss was right with his colour of Danube, but you will have wonderful view on the illuminated Budapest.
We promise you unforgettable evening with romantic candlelight atmosphere.
There are not many countries beside Hungary, where the art of folk-dancing is at such high artistic level. There exists even a college for studying Hungarian folk dances. The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are three of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition (formed in 1951, 1957, and 1952), which have performances all around the country and abroad.
All the three of the 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.
Every concert starts at 20.00, and consists of two parts, 40-45 minutes each, plus an intermission.
After the folklore performance, a host or hostess will accompany you to the pier. The cruise starts at 22:00, but always waits for the guests from the theatre. On the ship, you can feel the romantic atmosphere of Budapest, surrounded by the friendly lights of the Danube capital and enjoy a warm and excellent buffet-dinner. The meals are prepared by European, and world champion food sculptor, Molnárka Péter, who is a true artist. He adds a creative touch to the already outstanding Hungarian and international cuisine served on our ships, placing emphasis on the harmony of color and form.
We will take you on a 1,5-hour-long cruise on one of our air-conditioned ships. 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.
