A town with a population of 9,761, accessible also by suburban train on the Csepel Island on the bank of the Danube. The significant buildings of the town include the Blessed Virgin church (1487), the Louis XVI. style Saint John the Baptist church. The Calvinist church with its brick facing in neo-Gothic style and a 43 m spire were built at the beginning of the century. The most imposing building of Ráckeve is the Savoyai mansion (1702-1714), the first example of secular Baroque architecture in Hungary. The statue of Árpád, the work of Gyula Szász, was erected on Árpád square, next to the mansion during the millenary celebrations in 1897. The Árpád Museum in the Münich House presents the archeological finds of the surroundings and the objects and documents of the Middle Ages. Keve Gallery is the venue of the temporary exhibitions of contemporary Hungarian artists and designers. There is a permanent art exhibition in the Town Gallery, where contemporary paintings are also on show. The National Festival of Nationalities is held in May while the Summerfest International Folk Dance Festival is organized between 12th and 20th August.
