At the end of October, the biggest swing dance event in Hungary is going to start in Budapest. Between October 29th and November 3rd, you can enjoy jazz music and swing dance in a uniquely special and spectacularly beautiful environment – in the capital city of Hungary, on the river Danube. 

Lindy Shock University is organised every year since 2007, hosted by Budapest. At the end of every October, the “Európa Hajó” (Boat Europe) is full of swing dancers, teachers, and big bands from all around the world. Budapest is one of the best cruise destinations as you can read about it here.

The boat is docked at Batthyány Square (on the Buda side of the capital), and for 6 days, it is on the move to take dancers back in time into the magical world of jazz music surrounded by the enthralling visual paradise of Budapest.
