The 20th of August is a national holiday in Hungary. We are celebrating the foundation of the state, and our first Christian king, St. Stephen. Also the holiday of the “new bread”. This is the biggest celebration in summer in Hungary!
There is no better viewing point for the fireworks than a boat on the river since it will be launched from the Gellért Hill and three bridges (Chain bridge, Erzsébet and Szabadság).
A buffet dinner of 4 courses and melodies played by the renowned Hungaria Orchestra makes the event complete.
