House of Terror

This museum is dedicated to the atrocities of the fascist dictatorial regime in the Second World War and the communist dictatorial regime thereafter. It is also a memorial to the victims of these regimes, including those detained, interrogated, tortured or killed in the building. The basement of the building still contains the cells used by the Communist secret service.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
