On 18 May 1867, Jules Verne was the first to greet Count Ödön Széchenyi, who had embarked from Budapest on the steamship Hableány on 6 April to travel to the World Exhibition in Paris entirely by inland waterways.

It was 20 metres long, with a beam of 2.33 metres and a draught of 0.56 metre. The vessel was built in the ship-building shop of József Hartmann in Újpest, based on the plans of Adolf Höcher. It was commissioned in November 1866, with a 6-horsepower motor which working with 4 atm pressure.
