Hungarian village put up for rent
If "king for a day" sounds too majestic, a small Hungarian village will let you become deputy mayor for a few days.
The village of Megyer, population 18, has put itself up for rent to companies and tourists.
For 210,000 forints (£500) a day, a renter gets seven guest houses 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
There is also the possibility of temporarily being named deputy mayor.
The deal aims to revitalise the hamlet, which dates back to at least the 11th century and is 190km (120 miles) south west of Budapest.
Mayor Kristof Pajer said the silence of the remote countryside was its main attraction.
"We offer all sorts of programmes to our guests, but most are simply captivated by the surroundings and the quiet," the 42-year-old engineer said.
"Once they sit out in the meadow with a bottle of rose wine, nothing else matters."
Mr Pajer said he tries to get companies using Megyer for team building, for example, to include some village improvements in their activities, such as helping to paint the playground swings.
The privileges of deputy mayors, he said, allow interim officials to rename the village streets to their liking for the duration of their stay.
