The 20th of August – so called St. Stephen’s Day – is one of the most important national holidays in Hungary. King St. Stephen, who was canonized on August 20, 1083 by Pope Gregory, was the first monarch of Hungary. This day became an annual celebration in 1771 with the help of Maria Theresa, who designated it as a national state and church holiday. Since then, Hungarians celebrate on August 20th with festivities, creative programs, and fireworks.

Our boat offers one the best ways to experience this Hungarian holiday. You will spend ~4 hours on our double-decker boat, while enjoying the excellent view of the fireworks in the center of the Hungarian capital, all while avoiding the huge crowds, and indulge in 5, freshly prepared cocktails onboard. The colorful display is centered around Gellért Hill, but you can see them from a unique spot, directly on the river.
