Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum and its collection

Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum
Source

The Hospital in the Rock in Budapest is a hospital-turned-memorial that serves as a grim reminder of the horrors of the war and of the suffering it brings upon the people. It was first opened in 1944 to serve as a hospital for wounded Hungarian civilians who were injured during airstrikes and, eventually, also for the soldiers. The crew of doctors and nurses, who saved thousands of lives, consisted partly of Jewish prisoners, who were forced to be there as part of their labour service. Gradually, the hospital fell into disrepair. It was renovated only in 2007 to be finally opened to the public in 2008. Visiting is not allowed under 6 years.

    The Hospital in the Rock is a small but very interesting museum. A nice guide takes you on a tour that lasts just under an hour and shows you around the hospital explaining the hard times of the Second World War, the communist era and the plans to use it as a nuclear bunker. Recommended!
