Fireworks in Budapest 20th August

Fireworks in Budapest 20th August

20th August in Budapest is called St. Stephens Day. St Stephen was the first king of Hungary, who founded the Hungarian State. This is a very big day for the Hungarian people and also for the tourists.
This day traditionally begins with an inauguration ceremony in front of the Parliament of Hungary in Kossuth Square, Budapest. On this special day the entry to the Parliament is free, and you can also take a look at the Holy Crown inside the Parliament building. Please note that the queue at the entrance is huge every year, so be prepared for a long wait.

After visiting the Parliament, we recommend you to check the other side of the river Danube as well. On the Buda Side, you will find the the Street of Tastes, where you can try many different tastes of the Hungarian cuisine. On Aug 20, the Chain Bridge functions as an all pedestrian zone, so you can reach Buda by walking through, and enjoying the beautiful sight of the Danube from the bridge.
Then you can continue your 20th August tour up to the Buda Castle and learn about the hand made items in the Festival of Hungarian Handcrafts in Budapest while you enjoy the festival.
From 5 pm the traditional festive procession starts from the St. Stephen Basilica, led by a famous bishop.
Finally, from around 9 pm comes the highlight of this day: the 20th August Fireworks Show. You can admire this attraction from the bank of the river Danube, or from the river Danube if you take a Fireworks Cruise Budapest.

Program: Budapest August 20th
Location: Kossuth Square Budapest, Chain Bridge, Chain Bridge Street, Buda Castle district, Buda Castle, St. Stephen square, almost the whole Budapest
