Float away on the A38Budapest, Hungary
In a former life, the A38 was a Ukrainian stone hauler used to transport gravel across international waters. Today it has transformed into the ultimate floating bar and music venue, and is permanently moored on the banks of the Danube in Budapest.
A hall that once stored mounds of rocks now pumps out rock ‘n roll, former equipment bays boast art exhibitions, a selection of bars tempts thirsty revelers, and there’s even an on-board restaurant that serves hearty Hungarian fare.
While it no longer sails to distant waters, the ship still pulls a worldly crew with international acts thrashing its stage and DJs hitting the decks. For something more cultural, check out the program of film screenings, literature readings and food and wine festivals.
Make the most of those Hungarian drink prices while you’re on board!
