Back then, this was the second funicular railway operating in Europe. The funicular had been meticulously reconstructed and rebuilt in a vintage style after being completely destroyed in a WWII bombing raid. The Buda Castle Funicular was admitted to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1987. Currently it runs on a 95-metre route of 50 metres elevation and has two carriages. The Buda Castle Funicular has two stations, the lower station is at the Buda end of Chain Bridge and the upper station is on Castle Hill, between the Royal Palace and Sándor Palace.
