Hungarian concerts and Folklore performances in Budapest

After a long day exploring Budapest’s landmarks and museums, it is time to discover Hungary’s rich culture by visiting one of the city’s folk music and dance shows.

Hungarian Folklore performances

Hungarian Folklore is based on traditional dances that have been preserved for several centuries in small Hungarian villages. These performances will bring you closer to Hungary’s traditional music, dance, costumes and traditions.

Budapest has three extremely renowned folk groups. These music and dance groups have been performing for over half a century both in Hungary and abroad:

  • Conjunto Folclórico Nacional de Hungría The Hungarian State Folk Ensemble was established in 1951 and the group has traveled to over 44 countries, playing authentic folk music and dancing beautifully. It is one of the best-known Folk ensembles. 
  • Conjunto Artístico Danubio Established in 1957, the Danube Folk Ensemble is one of the most popular and versatile traditional Hungarian music and dancing groups.
  • Conjunto Artístico Rajkó Founded in 1952, the Rajkó Folk Ensemble and Orchestra is unique in the world. It is continually renewing itself to offer the best Hungarian Folk music. All the group’s musicians have studied at its legendary music school that recruits talented young artists. 

The previously mentioned performances have the same price and are all very similar, so we would recommend booking any of the three depending on their availability and performance dates.
