Folklore Performances


There is no better way to experience a country’s tradition, than learning about its authentic dance and folk music. Heritage is the honour of the treasured tradition we carry with ourselves, what makes people feel they belong to, and are part of the country they live in.

A Hungarian Folklore Performance is an event no one should miss while visiting the Hungarian capital. Our company offers Folklore Performances in two of Budapest’s most prestigious theatres with a central downtown location, they take place in the Duna Palota and the Budai Vigadó, performed by three of the best professional Hungarian Folk Ensembles. The performances are the mediators between the tradition of the nation and the guests; an opportunity to bring the Hungarian virtuose, the heritage and the love of art closer to visitors in 90 minutes.
