What to expect

Hungary celebrates its national day on 20 August, marking the foundation of the state and the country’s first Christian king, St. Stephen. Celebrate the 20 August on a Danube river cruise with watching the marvelous fireworks. Moreover we invite you to enjoy our dinner prepared by chef Molnárka Péter, along with your favorite drinks from the open bar on board.

It is Budapest’s biggest event of the year! You can watch the fireworks from the upper deck of the ship after dinner. The cruise begins at around 7:00pm and the ship anchors before the fireworks begin.
