A Hungarian mayor is putting his entire village up for rent to bring in some cash and put it on the map, even offering the deputy mayorship as part of the bargain. For 210,000 forints - around HK$6,150 - a day, interested parties can rent out all facilities in the pretty but largely deserted village of Megyer, which has a population of 18 and is located 180km southwest of Budapest. An online advertisement says the rent includes use of Megyer's four streets - two of which are asphalted and two are gravel - as well as the mayor's office, the village cultural centre, the bus stop and seven furnished "peasant-style" houses. "A law I brought in means an outsider can also become deputy mayor for a weekend, and even change the street names if you want," Megyer Mayor Kristof Pajer said. Tenants can also use the village cooperative's six horses, two cows, three sheep, poultry house and 4 hectares of arable land. Pajer - a 42-year-old engineer originally from Budapest - said he fell in love with tiny Megyer when he first passed it by chance 10 years ago. A year later, soon after buying a property there, he was elected mayor. Pajer said his goal was to save Megyer from the slow death suffered by many remote Hungarian villages whose young people left for Budapest or abroad as soon as they could. "Megyer was always poor, but it has kept its charming rustic atmosphere," says Pajer, who lives and works mostly in Budapest but visits the village once a week. Only five of the village's 20 houses are lived in around the year. "I hope the advertisement will bring Megyer some revenue, but more importantly some attention," Pajer said.
