Owner description: The Danube Palace was built between 1883 and 1885, in a splendid Neo-Baroque style according to the plans of Vilmos Freund. At that time it was known as the casino of Lipotvaros - but not in the term of gambling, but an aristocratic club for entertainment. From its built till the Second World War the Palace served as a place of culture, supported many young artists, and even Bartok, Kodaly, Dvorak played in its first-class concert hall. Since 1951 the building was carrying out the cultural programs of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.Nowadays the beautiful halls and rooms of the Danube Palace are hosting cultural, social and gala events like weddings and Folklore performances.

“Beautiful costumes, great dancing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

This was well worth visiting, although our seats were not the best. We had front row seats on the balcony in Row 1 Seats 1 and 2, but the balcony curved strangely and inhibited our view. The theatre itself seemed very tired and a bit run down, with no bar before the performance started. However, the evening itself was delightful with very enthusiastic musicians and dancers. The costumes were stunning and their energy incredible. I would definitely recommend.

“Excellent Hungarian Folk Dance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Entertaining, performance was energetic. The dancers were excellent and conveyed joy of dance to the audience. I have seen highland dance and some Ukrainian folk dance and this performance was superb. The second time I attended a performance here. I was in Budapest with my granddaughter and liked it so much I wanted her to see and she enjoyed it very much.

“Hungaria Koncert Emsemble”

We loved it! Excellent music, excellent dancing! It's clear that the musicians and dancers love sharing their culture and traditions with the audience. They danced and played hard. It was an honor to be there.
