Today is Polish-Hungarian Friendship Day.
I wish all the best to my Hungarian and Polish readers!
LONG LIVE HUNGARY & POLAND!
Our two nations have a lot of history in common. The kingdoms of Poland and Hungary have been in personal union more than once and they have been allies for most of their history. There is even a popular bilingual proverb about our shared friendship.
“Polak, Węgier — dwa bratanki,
i do szabli, i do szklanki,
oba zuchy, oba żwawi,
niech im Pan Bóg błogosławi.”
“Lengyel, magyar – két jó barát
Együtt harcol s issza borát
Vitéz s bátor mindkettője
Áldás szálljon mindkettőre.”
Translated into English:
“Pole and Hungarian cousins be,
good for fight and good for party.
Both are valiant, both are lively,
Upon them may God’s blessings be.”
