Park
“The Szemlő-hegyi Cave is Budapest's underground flower garden. The most beautiful and most typical parts of the cave can be observed during the guided tours on the 300 metre long tourist path. You can see walls covered with thick layers of mineral deposits that are unique in Europe: splendent, white crystals of gypsum, popcorn formations and calcite rafts. The comfortable and safe pavements and the modern electric lighting make the tour even more enjoyable. Thanks to the clean, dust and allergen-free air of the cave respiratory diseases have been successfully cured here. OPEN: every day except for Tuesday from 10am to 4pm.”
