Dinner and Cruise with Live Music
Budapest is known for the variety of pleasures it can offer, but why choose when you can have it all? The Dinner and Cruise with Live Music is a great opportunity to dive into Hungarian food, culture, architecture and music over the course of an evening. Within the space of two hours, you can see the capital city’s landmark sights from the deep-blue waters of the Danube River, taste the renowned local cuisine during a buffer-style dinner, all the while being serenaded by a quartet of talented folk musicians. Life is full of choices and compromises; however, this event checks all the boxes and has something for every taste.
The cruise is planned perfectly, so that you can lay your eyes upon the many signature views and sites around the Pearl of the Danube, magically transformed thanks to the beautiful nightly illumination. The House of Parliament, one of the largest of its kind, stands even taller when viewed from the board side. The capital’s magnificent bridges, such as the architecturally exquisite Chain Bridge, are best studied from the water, too. Keep an eye out for the elevated Buda Castle and Mount Gellért with its august citadel as well. As you proceed with your dinner, the notable natural and man-made points across Budapest can only add to your evening’s enjoyment. The boat’s open balconies beckon you to step outside and get even closer to the city’s views, complementary drink in hand.
Since we already mentioned dinner, prepare your taste buds for the dominant, delectable flavours of Hungarian cuisine. The gulyás soup, full of paprika and meaty goodness, the savoury hortobágy pancake, and many more traditional dishes await you at the buffet. All the while, four musicians from the decorated Rajkó Folk Orchestra provide an authentic soundtrack to your cruise. Pay particular attention to the cimbalom, a unique musical instrument that requires immense precision and talent to play well. The Dinner and Cruise with Live Music thus offers a comprehensive and unique look into Budapest’s many charms and graces. Get on board!
