Dinner Cruise with Folklore and Operetta Show
Sometimes you are just spoilt for choice: the Dinner Cruise with Folklore and Operetta Show brings you a singularly rich experience of Budapest’s culture, sights and food. A band of talented musicians and a troupe of folklore dancers in traditional outfits immerse you into Hungarian culture, so by the time you deboard the luxurious catamaran you feel a little bit more like a local. The boat tour on the Danube River takes you through the tastefully illuminated landmarks of evening Budapest. To tie it all together, a choice of a satisfying three- or an opulent six-course menu takes the dance to your palate. A selection of local alcoholic beverages and soft drinks* can be purchased extra to round off your culinary experience.
You can make this a romantic dinner for two or a fun outing with your family or friends – the Dinner Cruise with Folklore and Operetta Show is as versatile and exciting as you make it out to be. The ship’s route does not miss any of Budapest’s main attractions. You can see the gloriously lit up bridges on the Danube, like Elisabeth Bridge, Chain Bridge, Liberty Bridge, Margaret Bridge, or Rákóczy Bridge. Buda Castle, Mathias Church and the House of Parliament are also on the itinerary, naturally. You can feast your eyes upon the city’s evening beauty while you sink your teeth into the delectable local cuisine.
For your entertainment, the band plays throughout the three hours you will spend on the water. The dancers swing and sway in tune with the traditional Hungarian songs and excerpts from famous operettas that pay tribute to the country’s rich folklore. Women carry wine bottles on their heads while men prance around with sticks – it hardly gets jollier than that. If you feel particularly touched by the performance, the dancers will be happy to let you join and teach you some basic steps. The Dinner Cruise with Folklore and Operetta Show is a true celebration for all the senses that invites you to dive deep.
