Budapest is an incredible city. Ancient history, an imperial background, Europe’s biggest river and a stunning architecture. Budapest offers a lot of travel attractions and the most incredible is the cruise in Budapest. But there are a lot of attractions in Budapest, we will talk about some of them and finishing with some details about the Danube river cruise.
The impressive Heroes’ Square (Hosok tere) was largely the work of architect Albert Schickedanz, who was also responsible for the huge Museum of Fine Arts that flanks this large open space. Highlights include the Millennium Monument, a 36-meter column crowned by a figure of the Archangel Gabriel and unveiled in the late 19th century. Around the plinth can be seen a group of bronze horsemen representing the conquering Magyar Prince Arpad and six of his fellow warriors. On either side of the column, colonnades extend in a semi-circle, and between the individual pillars stand statues of Hungarian rulers. Above the corner pillars are beautiful works in bronze by Zala. In front of the Millennium Monument stands a memorial to the Unknown Soldier.
Thanks to its abundance of thermal baths, Budapest has earned the nickname ‘City of Spas’. There are many great baths in the Hungarian capital, but Szechenyi gets our vote for its stunning architecture and open-air bathing: visitors can relax in two outdoor thermal pools, surrounded by neo-Baroque and neo-Renaissance architecture. Located on the historic Andrassy Avenue, the Hungarian State Opera House is widely viewed as one of the world’s most beautiful. The building has played host to world-class operatic performances as well as ballets, concerts and more; for anyone not wanting to catch a show, guided tours of the building take place on a daily basis, with the option to add on a ‘mini-concert’. From July 2017 – May 24, 2018 the Hungarian State Opera House will undergo renovations in its auditorium, meaning there will be no performances during this time. However, the building will remain open for tours, and the Opera Shop and Cafe will also stay in business.
Our programmes are available in the frame of the Traditional Folklore and Operetta Show, or you can enjoy well-known Hungarian music performed by a Gypsy Band. Some of our cruises provide an unique live music piano show, during which world-famous pianists’ competition will transport you to a marvelous universe. On this programme, hostesses will take care about your comfort, and also entertain you with songs. This cruise with the live piano show may be an ideal programme for anniversaries or marriage proposals. Are you preparing for Valentine’s Day, but you are fed up with the average sites? Then our romantic dinner cruise is the ideal solution for you! Choose us, and surprise your sweetheart with a rose as the symbol of the eternal love in a special milieu.
