It’s worth the visit to the House of Terror whilst in Budapest, it’s steeped in history about how fascism& communism effected this country, not just during WW2, but after it. You learn quite alot, I had no idea of the shocking atrocities that were committed here.
The buildings roots are to the Hungarian Nazis! There is no holding back in here! There are some graphic images along with stories from people who lived through the time periods of war& communism, both equally as shocking. Although there audio guides available, I didn’t take one, this didn't bother me to much as there is extensive, & detailed info handouts in each section/area you go to.
The lift down to the basement area where you finish the tour is frighteningly eerie, and to see the chambers& rooms that victims were tortured& interrogated in chill you to the bone.
To see the whole building is around an hour or more& was priced around 1500HUF. I'll always say it was a highlight of my Budapest trip!
