Hungarian Folklore Performance and Dinner & Cruise in Budapest
Combine your Folklore Dance Show with a beautiful Dinner Cruise on the Danube and witness the breathtaking night panorama of Budapest in a 1 hour and 30 minutes long cruise.
The Dinner Cruise includes buffet dinner with Hungarian specialities, a welcome drink and an optional beverage.
Hungary is one of the very few countries where folk-dancing is performed very professionally. The authentic folk-dance shows take place in the Danube Palace and they are performed by The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and the Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra. These are three of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition (since 1951, 1957 and 1952).
The performed dances give the viewer a broad insight into Hungarian music, dance and costume heritage, covering traditions of former parts of Hungary as well.
