Relations between Poland and Hungary
COMMON HISTORY In 1370, after Kazimierz III's death, his nephew - Louis I of Hungary(on the picture) became the King of Poland. He did not hold his authority personally.His mother, Elisabeth,did it instead of him. He died in 1382.His older daughter Catherine was supposed to become the Queen. However, there was a civil war in Poland and one of its sides objected Andegawen's authority. Furthermore, Polish gentry chose young Jadwiga to be the queen. In 1387, she visited Rus Halicka to recover this land for Poland, as Rus was under Hungarian reign since her father had lost it. The mission was succesful. Jadwiga died 17 th, July, 1399 in Krakow. Another historical event is the fact that although the Polish nation itself supported the Hungarian Revolution in the year 1956, our army entered the country as a member of the Warsaw Pact. At the same time a revolt against comunist forces started in Poznań,Poland.
THE VISEGRAD GROUP The Visegrad Group (V4) is an alliance between four countries (Poland,Hungary,Czech Republic and Slovakia). Their most important aim was to become members of the European Union and NATO. The first meeting took place on 15 th, February in the Visegrad Castle, the presidents of the four countries attended the meeting.

"POLE AND HUNGARIAN - TWO GOOD FRIENDS" There are two respective forms of this popular bilingual proverb about the historic friendship between the Polish and Hungarian people: * A full Polish text of the proverb is: Polak, Węgier dwa bratanki, i do szabli, i do szklanki, oba zuchy, oba żwawi, niech im Pan Bóg błogosławi. which may be rendered: 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. *A full Hungarian text of the proverb is: Lengyel, magyar két jó barát, együtt harcol s issza borát. which may be rendered: Pole and Hungarian two good friends, joint fight and drinking are their ends.
DAY OF HUNGARIAN-POLISH FRIENDSHIP is celebrated on March 23 rd in both countries mentioned above. The celebration was established by Hungarian parliament on March 12, 2007, with 324 votes in favour, none opposed, and no abstentions. Four days later, the Polish parliament declared the same day as well. The tradition attributes the occasion which was unveiling of a monument named simply "Day of Hungarian-Polish Friendship". It presents two oak-trees which are connected with roots. The author of the monument is David Tóth. In the ceremony which took place in Győr, on 24 th, March 2006, Hungarian president - László Sólyom and the president of Poland – Lech Kaczyński to were present.
