Purely inspirational. Better be prepared than to get a nasty surprise. Thank you angels. Makes me wanna build or get built a bomb shelter under my home, too. Thinking about a modern version of course, and maybe (now or later group together - underneath blocks of flats bigger space, etc. strength in unity, you know. Hope and pray for peace.

The tour guide was one of the best tour guides that my wife and I ever had she was incredibly informative professional courteous and knowledgeable. After the tour or I felt like I had a firm grasp of the history of Buda Castle and the events that took place there both historically and currently. I would highly recommend this tour.
