5, Traditional Hungarian folk dance program

We can’t take you to Millennium Falcon for a great New Year’s Eve program, but we can suggest you an evening program with traditional Hungarian folk dance on Millenium boat. The amusement is guaranteed by the award-winning Hungária Folk Ensemble & Orchestra who will provide a great opportunity for dance. Besides getting a glimpse into Hungarian culture, you will have the opportunity to meet people from different countries with whom you will celebrate this unforgettable evening.

+ Our tip: celebrate on the streets

In Budapest, we like celebrating New Year’s Eve in the streets: you can join us (locals and tourists, as well) on several spots, for example on Nyugati Square, on Oktogon or on Vörösmarty Square. There is always a big hubbub and noise out there, so if you prefer something more sophisticated, this might not be your form of celebration. But if you are here to party and to really enjoy the night out, this will be the right choice for you. And we are sure that you will return next year.
