“good entertainment”

This folklore show was very interesting in a beautiful setting. Traditional dances and music. We also took the cruise up the danube river that included dinner. The food was delicious. One of the best of the trip. You can buy just the show or the show, dinner cruise combo. We did it all and it was great. The view up and down the river was so beautiful!! The price was 79 euro per person for the show, cruise with a wonderful buffet of local specialties with wine ,beer, ect. Worth every penny.
