What You Can Expect

Depending on your selected date and venue, your evening will begin at either the Danube Palace or Budai Vigadó. The Danube Palace is a stunning neo-Baroque building from the 1890s, where you’ll enjoy performances by either the Danube Folk Ensemble or the Hungaria Folk Ensemble and Orchestra. At the Budai Vigadó, you’ll find a regal Art Nouveau interior, which hosts the Hungarian State Ensemble.

No matter which you choose, each group comprises 30 of the best artists in the country and guarantees a riveting show. The choreography derives from the dances and Hungarian folklore of village life hundreds of years ago.

Your traditional folk performance will not only entertain, but will leave you with a richer understanding of Hungary’s culture through the music, steps and vibrant costumes. The show lasts around 90 minutes with a fifteen minute intermission.
