Budapest is most romantic during the nighttime with the Danube reflecting the illuminated view.
The Hungarian capital has most of the amazing sights right next to the Danube, the river that connects 7 European countries and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In 2 hours, you will see the House of Parliament, the Royal Palace, the Gellért Hill and the 6 bridges with great historical importance. We start from the oldest bridge of the city, the iconic Chain Bridge. Open buffet dinner is available for guests who want to try out the traditional Hungarian cuisine. The meals on our ships are prepared by Chef Molnárka Péter, including various Hungarian dishes, cold entreés, international favourites, vegetarian meals, desserts and much more.  On top of that, a welcome drink and two more drinks while cruising are also included in the ticket price.
While enjoying your dinner, you will be listening to 3 artists of the Rajkó Gypsy Orchestra live. The show features an extremely talented player of the most famous Hungarian instrument, the “cimbalom” as well. During the performance, guests will have a chance to ask for their favourite songs from the artists to play. The panorama of the city is best from the open upper deck of the boats.
