In Budapest, Hungary you can tour the labyrinth where they would toss people in to suffer for crimes, and where Vlad Tepesh (also known as Vlad the Impaler) was imprisoned for 15 years. As you walk through, they have set ups so you can see how the courts looked back in that time, and little histories.
You also learned that as well as being thrown into this labyrinth with no light, they also had rooms where they would torture inmates, as well as several torture devices. Pictured you see a well, where they’d lift the grate, toss you in, and close the grate. The end. There was also a crows nest in a real dark, almost hidden corner, but these were the only examples left, but it gives you a good idea of the horrors at which mankind is capable of, then and now, and it is still amazing.
Appropriately lit, and perhaps a bit garish and hokey, is Dracula’s Tomb… an obvious area set up for the tourists, but it was fun.
Regardless of the little area, the entire thing was dank, and rough, hewn out of the stone, and you can imagine trying to stumble along in the dark, not knowing your fate.
There’s a quick video coming up, so watch for that.
