Nature and history: Discover the secrets of the Castle District
Participants of our guided walking tours 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.
In one of the most extraordinary caves in Hungary the tour will take you to a journey through time: natural limestone caverns and 800-year-old man-made cellars were interconnected to a labyrinth that was 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.
The walking tour takes place in a cave environment on paved roads with lighting.
The inside temperature is 12°C (54° Fahrenheit), suitable clothing and comfortable shoes are recommended.
The number of participants is limited to 25 people at a time.
