Come and enjoy a friendly and memorable gala dinner with the WPTC participants on an amazing river cruise. A delicious gourmet dinner with wines will be served during the night.

When in Budapest one cannot miss out on sailing past the architectural wonders of the Hungarian Capital. The Castle district, the Citadella or the House of Parliament are just a few of the numerous gorgeous attributes the embankment of river Danube flaunts. The cruise through the city offers fantastic panorama to Buda and Pest alike. You can take a look at the bridges connecting the two riversides from a perspective you may have not even imagined before. As our ship passes under a bridge, you can truly feel their monumentality.

Our gala dinner with river cruise gives you the opportunity to marvel in the breath-taking panorama of the capital. Be sure not to leave your photo device home! The best pictures of the capital and the House of Parliament are taken from the deck of the ship!

The Congress gala dinner will be held on the Europe event-boat, which is the biggest and the most equipped river event-boat not only in Hungary, but in Central Europe as well. The elegant and stylish basic mood of the Europe event-boat is coming from the harmony of the different colours which have been used. The light-coloured floor and modern paneling provide an exclusive, welcoming atmosphere to our guests. Everybody can have a great time on the Europe event-boat with its total shipboard of more than 1500 square metres. Its indoor area is 920 square metres and its outdoor part is 2 x 320 square.

It’s an unforgettable experience to take a look to Budapest from the deck and praise its beauty, for you are not able to do that from any other part of the capital city. Make the most of your Budapest experience by combining a cruise with a fantastic dinner, and join us for this event!

The boat will depart sharp at 19:00 and will arrive back to the same place at 22:00.
