What to expect

Hungary celebrates its national day on 20 August, marking the foundation of the state and the country’s first Christian King, St. Stephen. You'll celebrate this special day on a Danube river cruise by watching incredible fireworks after tucking into a delicious dinner prepared by chef Molnárka Péter and sipping your favorite drinks from the open bar on board.
