Fireworks on August 20th
August 20th is a public holiday in Hungary. Named after the first king of Hungary, on St. Stephen’s day. The whole city shuts down to celebrate the foundation of the Hungarian state more than a thousand year ago. While history is loved by everyone, the big spectacle of the day is the celebratory fireworks, held over the picturesque Danube Promenade. Imagine the fireworks of July 4th, but instead of hot dogs you get lángos!
There you go, the best programs for Budapest summer 2015! Of course, if all else fails, just remember that Pub Crawl Budapest is there for you to give a night out to remember!
