Budavári Labirintus

Castle District Geological Site

Fodor’s Expert Review

Used as a wine cellar during the 16th and 17th centuries and then as an air-raid shelter during World War II, this 16-meter (52-foot) deep, 1,200-meter (3,900-foot) long labyrinth—entered at Úri utca 9 below an early-18th-century house—is perhaps best explored on the 6 pm evening tour, when the spooky, winding corridors are illuminated only by oil lamp. Special exhibits include a wax museum with elaborately costumed figures depicting the attendants of a "haunted" masked ball held by the Black Count–-a legendary 18th-century inhabitant of the tunnels; medieval stone monuments, including a red marble parapet from the palace of King Mathias; the Maze of Darkness–-a completely dark section of the tunnels; and "Count Dracula's" mist-filled tomb.
