    The belt of hills on the left-hand-side of the Danube suggests, with its steep rock formations and ravines, a varied underground world. The natural cavities formed in the rock by millions of years have been extended and adapted to human needs by the inhabitants of the city. The network of natural and artificial cavities, the beds of dried-up streams locked in the embrace of stone vaults, the ducts and the “balloons†of giant subsurface reservoirs all make a lasting impression.

    Underground Pest – Judit N. Kósa and Péter Szablyár


    ISBN 9639170488
    Published by the Municipality of Budapest, Office of the Mayor
    English Translation 2002
    40 Pages
    Price 600Ft (£2)

    Although no natural cavities could be formed on the Pest side, there is an exciting, man-made underground world hiding beneath the Pest-side quarters of the city, built on the former catchment plain of the Danube, stretching all the way to the belt of hills rising above the level of Gellért Hill on the edges of the city. Despite being an organic part of the pulsating everyday life of the metropolis, this underground world remains mostly hidden, veiled as it is in a mystical haze. It is worth setting out on a guided tour under the ground.
