The Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum is a thrilling, unique and moving place. Visitors can learn about the WWII and the 1956 revolution as well as the Cold War in relation to this former TOP SECRET nuclear bunker. It had an important role during the war and it was classified until 2002 and opened as a museum in 2008. The place ensures a real time warp into the past. Mobiles are not working inside. Do not expect a regular museum. One hour long tour departs every hour in English. Guide books are available in several languages. Unforgettable experience underneath the Castle Hill. The entrance is only about 5 minutes walk from the famous Matthias-Church of Buda Castle.

The caves under Budapest Castle were used as a hospital during ww2 and again during the 1956 revolotion against the Russian invasion. They have also been kitted out as a fairly ineffective nuclear bunker. Walking through the caves you see hospital wards, kichens etc. You...More

A really good guided tour and exhibition that all the family got something out of. Unlike Berlin, the post-1945 history of Budapest isn't immediately obvious. Without the signs, the Museum of Terror would be just another building, and the Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker...More
