Budapest keeps its glorious and painful past, both very close to its heart. Hospital in the Rock is an example of the ordeal that Budapest went through during the second World War. This Hospital was built in a cave system for air raid emergencies and acted as that from the year 1939-1945. Apart from this, the cave system was also used as refuges in the aforementioned years. It’s location is right below the castle hill and it is a part of the Castle district. Which is why, it was under the government ever since the beginning. After serving as a hospital for the longest time, with about 3 patients lying on the same bed sometimes, this place later functioned as a vaccine producing institute. Later it became a revolutionary spot and after expanding during the cold war, it eventually became a storage place for Nuclear Bunker and Civil Defence Forces. After that it was renovated by various organizations and in the year 2007 was finally opened as a museum to the visitors and today is a great insight into a chunk of history that is very close to Budapest.
