In the afternoon, it was time for a
welcome drink at the lobby, and
time for registration for the event.
We all received a unique bathrobe,

The first activity on the agenda was a
river cruise on the danube. We started near the famous Chain
Bridge (Széchenyi lánchíd), the first
connection between the two cities of Buda and Pest.
Skander gave a short welcome speech
The cruise took about 90 minutes and we
had dinner in the Labyrinth of
Buda Castle (Budavári Labirintus) afterwards. This
labyrinth is really unique and it served many different purposes during
history, eg. a secret military installation during the Cold War.

labyrinth. In reality, the labyrinth was much much darker than

One spectacular location in the labyrinth
was the Renaissance Hall of Rocks with Wine Fountains
of Mathias: About 30 litres of red wine are circulating in
During the walk in the labyrinth, we also saw a glimpse of the Xmas special Winter Day (SUJW100S)...
...and at the end, a very nice attraction:

Xmas event 2007: City Tour Game, Store Opening, and more...
