Back page: Hungarian village up for rent

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — The village of Megyer, population 18, has put itself up for rent to companies and tourists. For 210,000 forints ($750) a day, a prospective renter gets seven guesthouses that sleep 39 people, four streets, a bus stop, a barn, a chicken yard, six horses, two cows, three sheep and four hectares (10 acres) of farmland — along with the possibility of temporarily being named deputy mayor. Mayor Kristof Pajer said Wednesday that the silence of the remote countryside was its main attraction. Pajer says he also tries to get companies using Megyer for team building, for example, to include some village improvements in their activities, like helping to paint the playground swings. Among the privileges of deputy mayors, Pajer said, interim officials can rename the village streets to their liking for the duration of their stay.
