Interested in what's underneath Castle Hill?
The Labyrinth is situated in the complex of caves and cellars beneath Castle Hill. The underground labyrinth system served as a large shelter and hospital during World War II, but the Turks also used it back in the 16th century, mainly for military purposes. Remains dating back to the Turkish era confirm that part of the Labyrinth was also used as a harem. In the 15th century the Labyrinth gave home to a prison and it's most famous prisoner was Vlad Tepes, better known as Count Dracula, held in captivity by Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus.
The underground labyrinth is about 6 miles long and the part, which can be visited, is one mile. Tours include 'Labyrinth with Lanterns', offered daily from 6 pm and 'Kids' Labyrinth', offered every Sunday between 10 am and 3 pm. Night tours, birthday parties and educational programs are also available.
