Hospital in the Rock
$55

The Hospital in the Rock Museum (Sziklakórház Atombunker Múzeum) is part of an approximately 6-mile (10-km) stretch of interconnected caves and cellars below Buda Castle Hill. This museum is dedicated to a former secret emergency hospital and nuclear bunker.The history of this emergency hospital goes back to World War II, when Castle District was part of the Government Quarter. The caves and tunnels were connected and fortified and used as an air raid shelter. By orders of the city mayor, an emergency surgical hospital was built within the caves beneath Buda Castle Hill as well. It was used during WW II until July 1945 and then during the 1956 Revolution to treat wounded civilians and soldiers. Between 1958 and 1962 it was expanded to withstand potential chemical and nuclear attacks during the Cold War. The "Hospital in the Rock – Secret Emergency Hospital and Nuclear Bunker" opened to the public in 2008.

The cost includes round-trip transfer and a one-hour guided tour.
