Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum
The captivating history of the Hospital in the Rock (Sziklakórház), an underground hospital turned into a nuclear bunker beneath Buda Castle, was kept secret until 2002. Now you can discover this unusual attraction in person. Nearly 200 life-like wax figures, along with original furniture and medical equipment from the 1940s and 1950s, help you picture the scenes when this hidden facility treated wounded from the Siege of Budapest in January 1945 and Hungarian Uprising of 1956. The newest section introduces today’s military medicine through the rescue operations of special forces. English-language tours depart hourly, last entry 7pm.
