Polish-Hungarian Friendship

March 23 was the Day of Hungarian-Polish Friendship. On March 12, 2007, Hungary's parliament declared March 23 the "Day of Hungarian-Polish Friendship". For the record it was 324 votes in favour, none opposed, and no abstentions. The Polish parliament four days later declared March 23 the "Day of Polish-Hungarian Friendship" by acclamation. Relations between the two states date back to the Middle Ages, with the two peoples enjoying a traditional close friendship. From the Middle Ages well into the 18th century, Poland and Hungary had shared a historic common border until the Treaty of Trianon dismembered the Kingdom of Hungary in 1921. God bless our Polish brothers!
