Budapest Bug

The city from stone under Buda Castle

The Labyrinth of Buda Castle is among the world’s 7 underground wonders - along with the underground attractions of Paris, Moscow, London and Orlando…the Buda Castle district itself part of the world heritage. The labyrinth which is located 16m under the surface is a unique cultural and turist spectacle around the world.
The Labyrinth has got its mythes too - the internationally unique calcareous tufa caves of Castle Hill were created as an effect of the hot water springs almost half a million years ago. Later the small caves were connected to each other and also to the cellarage of the houses of the Castle District for economic and military purposes, and the complex thus developed into a veritable labyrinth under the Castle Hill. In the 1930s, as part of the war-time defense program, the complex of cellars was converted into a shelter large enough to accommodate as many as ten thousand people at a time.The bomb shelters developed in the cellar system for ministry and government officers before and during the Second World War were treated confidentially. Disfigured with concrete, it served as a secret military object during the Cold War.
