This museum is located on Castle Hill on the Buda side of the city. It relates relatively recent history, having been built in 1939 but it is a fascinating view into Budapest history in WWII, the 1956 Revolution and the Cold War. There are tours...More

Take some time to learn about the modern history of Budapest and you'll realise why this is a good place to visit. Situated on the back end of the palace district, it's not an obvious find, but it is worth the visit. It can be...More

This is one of those must see places. Not only was it a fully operational hospital dug into a rock fortress, but it was also a nuclear shelter. It gives you a perspective on how the Russians saw a nuclear war being fought.

Very interesting place to experience & learn a bit of Hungarian history. Great story of the courage & dedication of Doctors and Nurses saving all soldiers in terrible circumstances.

This is a very well done testament to the suffering of the people of Budapest during the wars and occupations. And a testament also to their perseverance and dedication to their country. There are wax figures posed in almost every room to visually represent how...More

While much of the exhibit inside this throw-back site (dating to World War II) and focusing heavily on the Soviet Era) is corny, it is fascinating to see how this hospital was carved out of the rock -- first as a safe haven for the...More

Budapest sits on an extensive system of thermal waters. Over the centuries, thermal waters have carved out an extensive system of caves through the rock of Castle Hill. It is estimated there are about 6 miles (10 kms) of tunnels and caves, most of them...More

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

My boyfriend and I are staying in the inner city of Pest in the beginning of December this year. How would you recommend getting to the hospital museum as it is quite far, is there a metro close by? Also, would you recommend we pre book tickets or just turn up?
