Owner description: 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.

Had the pleasure of attending this tour today and was humbled by the experience. First, the service was lovely - everyone we spoke with was quite kind and accomodating. The tour guide was especially impressive. She delivered the tour with a certain reverence to the place - and she wanted her guests to feel the same. The tour really helped... More

Such an interesting experience and one most North Americans cannot fathom. Very well done and authentic representation of a period in time not so long ago. You must see this when up on Castle Hill. Well worth the stop.

It was really stunning. It was a bit tricky to find the adress but because of the name of the place it wasn't that hard, we knew it would be in the mountain. It started with a short film with all the info and then the guide walked us through and told us about each room and different events. The... More

Take an hour and do the tour. Tours start on the hour. Medical history from the 50's through to the 80's. You will be interested and get some surprises as well. Ever been in a Nuclear bunker.

When you have seen the other sights, this is a great place to visit. It is right by the Buda Castle and takes maybe 45 min to see
