Just to the left of the funicular station is this angel mural.
Three flags on the stations:Hungary, Budapest, and European Union
A woman riding with us exclaimed, "This is just like Lookout Mountain." We don't think so! Another woman remembered getting stuck in a funicular in Slovenia (or Slovakia???). They were stranded for 5 hours and eventually rescued. When she was rescued, all she could do was laugh. The medical attendants released her. I thought she was lucky to have not gotten a psych exam. Her students later told her that there had been a fatal accident on that funicular just months earlier. Guess they were still getting the kinks out. I preferred to think that the Buda funicular is much more reliable.
This tunnel is to the right of the funicular (down) station. If you travel by car from the Pest side and take the Chain Bridge over the Duna and go straight forward you will enter this tunnel and, literally, go through the Buda hill and on to the other hills of Buda and beyond...
