There are not many countries beside Hungary, where the art of folk-dancing is at such high artistic level. There exists even a college for studying Hungarian folk dances.
The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra are three of the best professional Hungarian folk ensembles with the longest tradition (formed in 1951, 1957, and 1952), which have performances all around the country and abroad. All the three of the ensembles consist of 30 artists. Their choreographies are based on authentic dances. Some of them were collected in isolated villages and date back hundreds of years. Through the performed dances you can get a broad view of the music, dance and costume heritage of Hungary and the Hungarian inhabited areas.
This short video compilation represents how the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, the Danube Folk Ensemble and the Hungária Folk Ensemble & Orchestra perform on stage:
Every concert starts at 20.00, and consists of two parts, 40-45 minutes each, plus an intermission.
After the folklore performance, a host or hostess will show you to the pier. The cruise starts at 22:00, but always waits for the guests from the theatre. The meeting point for the Dinner & Cruise depends on the theather, where the performance will be held.
On the ship, you can feel the romantic atmosphere of Budapest, surrounded by the friendly lights of the Danube capital and enjoy a warm and excellent buffet-dinner. The meals are prepared by European, and world champion food sculptor, Attila Tanács, who is a true artist. He adds a creative touch to the already outstanding Hungarian and international cuisine served on our ships, placing emphasis on the harmony of color and form.
We will take you on a 1,5-hour-long cruise on one of our air-conditioned ships. In the romantic candlelight atmosphere you can enjoy the wonderful view of Budapest swimming in lights. After dinner you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.

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.
