    Hungarian & Gypsy music & dance concert

    Duna Palota

    My wife and I enjoyed a folk music & dance concert by the Rajko Folk Ensemble which included a Brahms Hungarian Dance and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No 2. The concert was excellent and performed in a magnificent theatre, the Duna Palota (Danube Palace). The building was built between 1883 and 1885 in Neo-Baroque style. The Rajko alternate with other orchestras. The theatre building is worth going to for the magnificent, if slightly over the top decor.

    There is many hidden cool places, but certainly I could not find them if I have not got the locals. I sincerely just can advise Budapest Pubs. The some of the touristic ones are expensive and not that good - not my style, shame - but in the 5th 6th 7th 8th districts you can find a lot good, underground, art places... Budapest is full of tourist at the moment, but If you spend a bit to find the local services Iam sure you will have been a right spots.

    Strolling around midnight.

    by VinceTraveller Written Jan 6, 2005

    After eating a lovely dinner (Gulash) with lots of paprika, having a wonderful dessert with red wine--it was a long dinner since musicians started playing Hungarian music and I just couldn't leave the place--I took a midnight stroll. As you can see by the Christmas tree, this was during the Christmas season.

    River cruise

    by McPee Written Apr 11, 2004

    The Legenda Cruise leaves after dark and takes about one hour.

    You get about a 25% discount with your Budapest Card. The trip is very reasonably priced. When you arrive you receive sparkling wine then a drink of your choice half way through.

    The trip includes a commentary in the language of your choice (headphones). It gives a brief history of Budapest while watching the dramatic backdrop of the Castle floodlit at night.

    Night Life

    by muthu_in_99 Written Feb 26, 2004

    The night life is Budapest is quite good. If you enjoy good music and drinks, there are a few discos around, and the crowd is really young. The girls are beautiful, and entry is not a problem, as long as you pay the entry fee.

    Like most bautiful cities when the sun goes down, the lights come on. All the major buildings are beautifully lit and have another dimension of beauty to them.

    Night view of Chain Bridge

    Chain Bridge

    The 99% of Budapest is really outside the Castle and Chain Bridge Area -- but this time we made this excursion with Zoli to the National Library and shot some photos...
