Video: 'Danube Regatta' In Budapest, 5 May
At the exciting annual Danube Regatta dragon boats and rowing teams compete on the most beautiful part of the Danube; between Parliament and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. See below for more info about what goes on off the water.

Besides water sports events, visitors can enjoy cheerleader shows, various sport programmes, concerts by the winners of the 'Sound of the University' music contest, and music until the break of dawn provided by top Hungarian bands and DJs. Read on for more from the orgainsers:

Rowing

The rowing competition gets even more exciting in 2018, as on the occasion the Hungarian presidency of the Visegrad Group, professional teams of eight from Czechia and Poland will test their strength with their Hungarian counterparts to prevail on water.

Dragon boat

The foundational element of the real Regatta-feeling each year is the dragon boat competition between universities. This year, we are pleased to greet a V4-team as well among the competitors. After the preparation period, dragon boat crews of amateur undergraduates will compete in two heats, which will be followed by an awarding ceremony.

Sou

We lose our minds this year again at the Sound of the University, the Danube Regatta's music contest, where we are searching for 2018's best university band. The winning band gets the chance to perform at a great Hungarian music festival, and other valuable prizes are waiting for him.
Sport, music and full-day relax on the Regatta will open the festival season!

Venue: Műegyetem rakpart (BUTE pier embankment)
