In May 2022, Harvard University's famous acapella choir The Harvard Krokodiloes got into a long and extremely exciting world tour. The Kroks, as they are nicknamed, perform concerts in 24 cities worldwide and what's even more amazing is that their world tour is almost 120 days long.
The Kroks tour in Hungary was extremely exciting in this year, thanks for the special concert venues in the most beautiful spots of Budapest. The first venue of the concert tour was the main staircase of the St. Stephen's Basilica. Thereafter the choir went step by step along the route of Budapest's main spectacles. They visited the Heroes Square, then they performed an Open-Air concert on the outdoor stage of the newly built House of Music concert hall in the City Grove. Perhaps the most exciting concert was on top of the Museum of Ethnopraphy which is a world-class architectural masterpiece designed by the Hungarian Napur Architect company. They also visited the Parliament, after which there was a splendid closing ceremony on the panoramic terrace of the recently opened Aranybástya restaurant in Buda Castle, which was attended by many ambassadors and diplomatic representatives.
