The lecture presents Hungary’s role in WWII. The presentation is enlivened with maps and photos about true, undistorted events, human fates and decisions, which led to the devastation of Budapest.

The aim of this lecture is to discuss the past and present of nuclear weapons in the world.

TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES
Nuclear Disaster Extreme Program
This is an incredible and unique opportunity to practice the civil defence protocol that the personnel would have had to carry out in the hospital in case of a nuclear disaster. The visitors are divided into smaller groups who have special tasks to carry out. The teams are lead and assisted by our local guides are provided technical guidance and direction at an enjoyable level. The program gives insights into air-raid siren warning, gas masks drills, and decontamination procedure.
Nothing is more natural than a spygame activity at a place which was codenamed and classified as LOSK 0101/1 “Top Secret” in the 1950s. In our “Spy Academy” apprentices are trained by our Elite Spies. The spy training aims at the acquisition of special techniques and skills such as code breaking, confronting your fear, and hiding your identity to mention but three. After taking part in the trainings, participants are divided into small teams and let off to fulfill their secret mission as perfectly as possible. For each successful task their deeds are rewards, however, you’d better remember a small mistake can give you or your team away…
We would like to kindly inform you that team building activities can be reserved after 4 p.m. and are only available on weekdays.
