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. You'll celebrate this special day on a Danube river cruise by watching incredible fireworks after tucking into a delicious dinner prepared by chef Molnárka Péter and sipping your favorite drinks from the open bar on board.

This is Budapest’s biggest event of the year! The ship anchors before the fireworks begin and you can watch them from the upper deck of the ship after dinner. During the cruise, you’ll hear salon music performed by three members of the Zoltán Kodály, the award-winning Rajkó Folk Orchestra, including the world-famous violinist Zsigmond Vidák.
