Now you can believe that a Danube dinner cruise on our unique designed, luxurious catamaran will give you an unforgettable experience while staying in Budapest. What could a complete Budapest river dinner cruise offer you? Especially on a national holiday when all the shops and museums are closed? Let’s see in details.

20th August, State Foundation Day of Hungary

As far as it is concerned, August 20th is one of the most popular national holidays in Hungary. Usually, Hungarians celebrate with dinner and fireworks. No one goes to work on this day; instead there is a huge celebration with the hoisting of the national flag on the Kossuth Square accompanied with fascinating fireworks at night. Nevertheless, the 20th of August is not only a day when nobody works and we watch the Fireworks Show on the sky, but also one of the most important points of Hungarian memorial history, when was the foundation of the State more than a thousand years ago by King Stephen I.

This day is also famous for the celebration of the New Bread. In many towns, priests bless and slice a loaf of bread. It has been celebrated since 1092. Then the craftsmen’s day takes place, where the current year’s Cake of Hungary is baked. Also a procession is held in the honor of the Holy Right Hand (the mummified right hand of St. Stephen I). The celebration’s ultimate experience is, of course, the fireworks, as the closure of the events.

Fireworks usually start at 9 pm in the evening and provide nearly 30 minutes of entertainment for everyone. The location of the program has been on the Budapest Chain Bridge in recent years. The music is usually old classics, which will balance the modern scenery. Among others, the colors represent the red-white-green Hungarian flag and the yellow-blue flag of the EU. The blazing stars dance to the Blue Danube Waltz and famous songs accompany some of the firework formations like of the famous Hungarian rock opera, Stephen, the King.

The big question is where is the best place to see the show?

Despite the great view of the program from everywhere in the center of Budapest, it can be a great experience if you watch the program directly from a Danube river dinner Cruise. The ship departs from Dock 11 on Petőfi Square, for boarding, departure and arrival time please check our timetable below. The ship sails from the Margaret Bridge to the Rákóczi Bridge. The dinner cruise offers a 4-course menu with an optional welcome drink, choosing it by arriving in the boat at the very beginning of the trip. The menu includes appetizers, soups, main dishes, and dessert, too. The staff also takes care of guests who are on a special diet, being a vegan or vegetarian or suffering from lactose or gluten problems. Should you need any other special food during the cruise you are kindly asked to get in touch with the waiter/waitress a day before. All of the dishes are prepared by a talented chef and served by a friendly staff onto your table during the 4-hour Budapest dinner cruise.
