Participants of our walking tours in the Buda Castle Cave can catch a glimpse of a 3,3 km long cave system hiding underneath the streets of the Castle District and discover the history and the unique geology of the Buda Castle Hill.
Natural limestone caverns and 800-year-old man-made cellars were connected to a labyrinth-like underground system thus becoming one of the most extraordinary caves in Hungary. The tour will take you to a journey through time: the underground halls and corridors were used in a variety of ways, from wine cellars, bomb shelters to even a medieval prison. In its present form the cave system is showing the result of the combined work of man and nature throughout many centuries.
