The area
Address
Neighbourhood: District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.

    Underground natural cave system
    We really enjoyed this experience. You need to pay in cash and then you get to explore the caves under the castle area. Some parts at pitch black so be careful, but it was fun and there are handrails mostly to help guide you through. You can skip the dark areas if you want. There are some mannequins with old opera costumes which didn’t fit with the history, but have you something to look at. It was nice and cool, a break from the heat above. You can spend as long as you like to explore but there is a clear route to get around.

    Bring a JACKET!
    Amazing. History combined with great sound effects (choir music, thematical for the caves) made a really earie athmosphere. Recommend to BRING A JACKET!! Even tho it was 36°C outside it was freezing cold inside. Also recommend to bring a friend who isn't scared of the dark. Would go again.🤌

    A bit of fun in the dark!
    We visited on a sunday afternoon, and it wasn't busy. Think it was cash only. This is a subterranean set of tunnels, which look man made, but there might be some that are natural. There are some wax work displays related to opera performances for some reason. It is very dark in some places, so you might need a torch or phone light. It's a bit of fun.

    Poorly signed, gets scary
    A very good idea, especially with all the historical figures presented and explained. A perfect way to cool during the heat wave. You are supposed to follow the arrows but it's extremely POORLY SIGNED, and just after a few turns and extensions so you do not know if you are going in the right direction or back and forth!!! Do not go in if you are even a bit claustrophobic.

    Eerie but Great Experience
    One of my favourite things to do when we visited Budapest. Really eerie in places, trying to navigate the underground corridors in total darkness. Needed a torch in one place with the smoke up to your neck as you couldn't see the floor or in front of you. Intriguing information about the history of the Labyrinth. Quite cheap (3000 HUF = £6.80). Definitely recommend.

    Could be great, but isn't!
    5,000 HUF each to lose your way in some very dark damp tunnels leading to nowhere. There are some random areas with music, bad waxworks, bad statues and a cage thing.... very bizarre. With a little more thought and work these tunnels could be so good, but sadly, they're not.

Favourite part of our trip. The place is huge and incredible. It was a quiet day when we went in so we saw 2 other people in the beginning and then never saw another soul until the end. Took us an hour to explore the entire space.
The choice of decoration is bizarre there's opera scenes and music, a giant snake with no explanation, a museum of statues of historical figures and quite the terrifying sensory depravation walk through a large pitch black space whilst holding onto a rope. You never kew what would be coming up next, I loved it.
Both fortunately and unfortunately for us the Vlad Tepes section was filled with natural fog which made for quite the disorientation experience. Whilst we couldn't really see any of the information stuff or props there's something so cool about walking around an underground space thats filled with white fog/mist where you can't even seen the person you are with nor the way out.
As a lover of all things spooky and underground I adored my experience here. Warning there's only one toilet near the end/beginning (to be expected but it's a long time to be lost needing a wee)

What an experience. My favourite thing we did in Budapest. I loved the stories of the ancient kings and royalty and of course Draculas capture.
It’s a little creepy, one section is pitch black. A few others who were visiting at the same time weren’t enjoying it so much… you’ve got to be into the history and enjoy the supernatural creepy stuff. If you do, you’ll love it. Best £10 spent.

part of the UNESCO World Heritage, a small sized cave, rumored that dracula was imprisoned here.. we are saddened to hear that, there is no more
dracula exhibition for some court case..

what you see today, humid underground area (~50ft), stone/wax works with artificial lights and sounds, we managed to clip some scary photos :)

PS: they accept cash payment only

What the f***? Seriously. Choked on the smoke, nearly fell over the big snake and frequently arrived in corridors with absolutely nothing in them.

This tour is awful, no information, badly made wax dummies that look like their from an old shop window, no idea what the wax dummies are in relation to the caves, no guidance, you have to use your phone torch to save walking into walls, there's a plaster snake with googly eyes and some heads on sticks (badly made) I've never laughed so much as was so bad, we got lost and then there was this mist, no idea...needs proper lighting, maybe some guides and even a leaflet..half ar$ed!
