Legendary Danube


My aunt, three cousins, and I took a Legenda night cruise in Budapest on the Danube Legend, and we enjoyed the trip very much. We cruised on a Tuesday evening at the beginning of March, and the boat was practically deserted! Although it was quite brisk outside, the boat was warm and cozy inside, as it is an enclosed boat. The staff spoke English very well, and they were friendly and quite pleasant.

The trip lasted for approximately one hour.

It was fantastic to see the fantastic landmarks of Budapest at night. In addition, headphones were provided so we could listen to a wonderful commentary and watch a video on a TV screen about the sights we were passing. We were also offered a complimentary glass of champagne, wine, beer, soft drink, or mineral water during the cruise. The champagne was special treat!

The cruise cost 5500 forints for each person, which came to about $24.00 US/Canadian. I thought this was a bit pricey compared to the deals we were used to finding in Budapest, but it was well worth the money. You can use Master Card and Visa to pay for your ticket at the booth.

I would highly recommend this night cruise. Afterwards, I would suggest strolling along the Danube to see all of the sights again from the shoreline.
