Built in naturally occurring caves and tunnels to provide a Red Cross hospital in the Second World War. It was hugely overcrowded during the siege 1944/1945 and re-used again in the failed uprising in 1956. Quite an incredible place.

I walked everywhere in Budapest, including to this site. I always find it amazing how humans cope and survive in very difficult situations. This was another example how people hid from their enemy during the war. Medical supplies were almost non existent but somehow, the...More
