What you'll do

We'll meet at Parliament to travel along the Danube on the tram then catch the city urban train to the village. The journey is 1 hour 15 minutes and you will travel a less-traveled tourist path through the industrial part of the city which quickly turns into beautiful countryside of fields, sunflowers, etc. The train is met by a local bus for the 15 min walk to the bridge where there is a market on Wednesday mornings and Saturdays which has the best local produce and artist wares, household goods, new and secondhand clothes and a few junk stalls. We then arrive at Old Buttons Museum shop which is an old pub to have a Brunch of freshly squeezed fruit juice, coffee, tea, pancakes, savory or sweet, cookies on the terrace. Everyone refreshed I will tell you all about the 4000 Buttons in the Collection, from Roman Times to Present day , a unique talk on the Early Plastics; all the materials that are in the Applied Arts ; all the Fashions through the Ages and all the different Countries of the World. The shop is full of old Hungarian Folk Art and Nostalgia. A magical miniature World. Then you are free to discover the other wonders of the village before I help you return.

Sylvia

I am one of the top Antique and Art Valuers in the UK but I made an alternative leap in my life to live in Hungary fifteen years ago and haven't regretted it for a minute! In that time I wrote the book 'Old Buttons' book which sells Worldwide plus being an Airbnb Superhost. My dream was to open a small Museum with my Button Collection and when I discovered this idyllic river village I relocated there into an old pub which is my mini Museum, a shop, bar/cafe and I am currently finishing a luxury Airbnb guest house next to the 500 year old Szerb Orthodox church which has Hieronymus Bosch-type frescos and Baroque interior decoration. A rare Art jewel in Hungary and not that far from the city. The Country river-side market on Wednesdays and Saturdays is wonderful and plenty more for a great non-tourist railroad day out of the city.

Where you'll be

We will be in a Market town called Rackeve. Its an ancient cultural river place of outstanding beauty that has a old 500 year church with incredible fresco work. The Old Buttons Museum Shop was an old pub with covered garden terrace is now a Tearoom and Pancake house and houses the Button Collection with lots of old Hungarian Folk Art. There's more museums etc. to see so I can help my guests enjoy their day/eve here fully with info in English.
