What do Hungarians celebrate on the 20th of August?

20th of August – or called St. Stephen’s Day as well – is one of the biggest national holidays of Hungary. King St. Stephen, who was canonized August 20, 1083, by Pope Gregory VII, was the first monarch of Hungary. This day became an annual celebration in 1771 by Maria Theresa, who specified it as a national state and church holiday as well. Since then Hungarian people celebrate on the 20th of August with all day long festivities, creative programs, and firework.

The national firework starts at 9 p.m. in the center of the Hungarian capital and the duration of it is about 30 minutes. These colorful pyrotechnics are shooted mostly from the Gellért Hill, but you can see them arriving from floating river cruises and from the street right next to the riverbank as well. Along the Danube thousands of people are celebrating during the day, enjoying the festive atmosphere and waiting for the evening show.
We offer this day a special event, a unique Firework Dinner Cruise.

  • Soup – We offer the most famous Hungarian soup to try, that one, which became a Hungarikum in 2017 - (this means Goulash soup is that kind of value that „represents the high performance of Hungarian people, thanks to its typically Hungarian attribute, uniqueness, specialty and quality”)- will definitely win your recognition. In case you prefer vegetarian dishes, our potato cream soup will be a perfect choice for you.
  • Main Course – A wide range of dishes represent the Hungarian culture in the main course as well, just like the famous stew with homemade pasta, the duck with cabbage or the fish, but of course we offer light salads or chicken with risotto for those, who prefer to avoid thes dishes mentioned before.

In case you like dinner cruises but prefer a quiet evening in a nice, romantic atmosphere, we would like to draw your attention to our Piano show, which is a magnificent music performance with romantic, happy, melancholic but even entertaining melodies as well performed by two talented pianists who play well-known songs during the evening you will definitely recognize. Our musicians perform one by one and parallel as well, creating a so-called „piano battle” among them, where they fight each other to win the singer’s attention in this romantic triangle.
