In 1999 the festival was a way of celebrating the Bridge’s 150th birthday and than it has become an annual festival. The old bridge, connecting Buda to Pest, is the symbol of Hungarian Capital.
In summer it is closed to the traffic and transformed into a huge stage. It hosts a series of free events and musical and theatrical performances. The visitors enjoy the pleasant views of the Danube while watching performances from jazz to classical music. There are also a number of stalls and cultural displays.
The good news? All performances are free!
The Festival takes place on every summer weekend from June to August! Enjoy it!
