Anna Ball information
Lonely Planet review
The annual Anna Ball on 26 July is a prime event on the Hungarian calendar. Even if you don't attend the ball it's worth joining the crowds gathering to watch the guests decked out in in their finest threads file into the venue, and on the following day the ball queen parades around town in an elaborate horse and carriage. Concerts accompany the days around the ball too, so keep your eyes peeled if you visit in late July.
