JOIN US FOR THE GREATEST FIREWORKS SHOW OF THE YEAR
The 20th of August is the biggest and happiest of celebrations in Hungary, it is when the Hungarian State was founded, the name day of our first king Stephen and the holiday of the “new bread”. The streets are filled with celebrators, people gather on both sides of the river to watch the largest fireworks of the year. Join us on our cruise and watch the event from the river in a real closeup!
The capital of Hungary is a many faced city, you can experience a wide variety of architectural styles in the different parts of it, each with its own story, its moving history and of course its present. During the celebrations the amazing fireworks above the river create an image of true beauty. Watch the brilliant display in style! Our program takes you on a 2,5 hours long romantic ship cruise down the Danube showing you the magnificent sights from the river, the ship anchors during the fireworks, then returns to the pier.
Did You know?
Stephen has always been considered one of the most important statesmen in the history of Hungary. His main achievement was the establishment of a Christian state that ensured that the Hungarians survived in the Carpathian Basin. His right hand is still kept in the largest church of the capital, the St. Stephen’s Basilica.
