The Panorama of Budapest is not only an unforgettable experience, but an illustration of the capital's history. The banks - added to the World Heritage List of UNESCO - offer one of the world's most outstandingly beautiful urban cityscapes. The site, insribed in 1987, streches from the Chain Bridge to the Technical University on the Buda side; an area containing the Gellért Baths, the Gellért Hill with the Statue of Liberty and the Citadel, furthermore the building ensemble of the Buda Castle.

The delicious meals on the ship are prepared by Chef Molnárka Péter.

Our Ship cruise starts around 19:00, and will anchor before the fireworks start (ships aren't allowed to sail during the show).

The cruising itself includes live music. The salon music is performed by three members of the Kodály Zoltán Awarded Rajkó Folk Orchestra, including the world-famous violinist Vidák Zsigmond (awarded with the Bronze Merit Cross of the Hungarian Republic).

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.
