What do Poles owe to Hungarians?

After an astounding success of threads like
What do Poles owe to Chechs?
What do Poles owe to Jews?
and many other,

it is time to start the dearest to many Polish hearts: about traditional Polish Hungarian ties/bonds!

The first (correct me if I am wrong) Hungarian contribution for Poland was Queen Jadwiga, today a saint and a patron of many churches, schools and other institutions.

Jadwiga (Polish pronunciation: [jadˈviɡa]; 1373/4 - 17 July 1399) was monarch of Poland from 1384 to her death. Her official title was 'king' rather than 'queen', reflecting that she was a sovereign in her own right and not merely a royal consort. She was a member of the Capetian House of Anjou, the daughter of King Louis I of Hungary and Elizabeth of Bosnia.[2] She is known in Polish as Jadwiga, in English and German as Hedwig, in Lithuanian as Jadvyga, in Hungarian as Hedvig, and in Latin as Hedvigis.

Jadwiga of Poland

Saint Jadwiga Technical High School, the celebration of the patron`s day:

One of the best Polish king was Stefan Batory from Hungary:

Stephen completely reorganized the Polish Army. Among his genuine inventions was the piechota wybraniecka semi-professional infantry formation, composed of peasants trained in both infantry warfare and engineering. Stephen also reorganised the judiciary by formation of legal tribunals. He also founded the Academy of Vilna, the third university in the Commonwealth and a predecessor of the modern Vilnius University.

Tasty, indeed

but

sorry, it doesn`t count here. I prefer to ignore things which discussed nations contributed to the whole world.

I want to focus on Polish contribution entirely.

In that case your thread should be about what Hungarians owe to Poles.

Orp, stop playing childish games with the language. You know what I meant. :):):)

Think hard of a real Polish Hungarian contribution and share it with us.

Węgrzyn - hungarian wine
"Throughout later history, the Polish aristocracy has imported and consumed wine on a large scale. Until the 1930s, some Bordeaux châteaux were bottling wine with labels in Polish (Léoville-Barton is an example). However, the preferred wine here appears to have been Hungarian, or 'wegrzyn' as it was referred to ('Wegry' being the Polish word for Hungary). The influence Polish demand had on wine production in Hungary is reflected by the fact ..."

There was a polish proverb: Nie masz wina nad węgrzyna [There is no wine as hungarian wine]

And:
"Hungariae natum, Poloniae educatum" Zrodzone na Węgrzech, wykształcone w Polsce {Born in Hungary, educated in Poland}.
Kontusz
Kontusz (from Polish language; plural kontusze; also spelled in English language as Kontush or Kuntush from Ukrainian: Кунтуш) (originally Hungarian Köntösis - robe) - a type of outer garment worn by the Hungarian, Polish, Belarusian, Lithuanian and Ukrainian male nobility (szlachta). It became popular in the 16th century and came to the lands that were under Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth rule via Hungary from Turkey. In the 17th century, worn over an inner garment (żupan), the kontusz became a notable element of male Polish national and Ukrainian cossack attire.

Pawian. Please settle a dispute I have with students. How old was Jadwiga when she was crowned?
OP pawian 150 | 7,948

Without googling, 13. Of course, I mean her marriage with Jagiełlo. Why?

After googling, 10.

Why?

Because some say she was crowned when she was 10, and married at 13.

I edited my previous post. 10.

Is it so popular in Poland to mention it????? :):):):):):)

Ok, ok, I give up. Guys, you can post about any Hungarian contribution to the world`s culture, even loosely connected with Polish affairs.

That is why I decided to swallow my own words which I said to Orpheus.

I prefer to ignore things which discussed nations contributed to the whole world.I want to focus on Polish contribution entirely.

Dear Or, I am realy sorry for being so strict.

Yes, that was heavy drinking with Hungarian wine.

See it at 14:38 - drinking, eating, singing, shooting, destruction, wanton sex. Polish gentry of 17 century.

In 1920, when Poland was in extremely difficult military situation, Hungarians sent ammo and supplies whoich proved crucial to win the war against Bolsheviks.

Did anybody already go to that Hungarian shop in Saska Kępa? "Papryka". I heard it is delightful, if not very cheap.

Another thing we should be grateful to Hungarians is Polish Hungarian cooperation during the II WW. In 1939 Hungarians refused to allow Hitler`s armies into Hungary (Slovaks agreed and Poland was attacked from the territory of Slovakia by joint Nazi and Slovakian units). About 120.000 refugees, both military and civilians, crossed the Polish Hungarian border after the Soviet invasion on 17 Sep 1939. Most of them moved to allied countries like France and Great Britain to carry on fighting. General Maczek was one of thousands soldiers who made their way to the West.

What did the fascist Hungarian government, politically allied with Hitler at the time, do about it? Exactly nothing. They were so proPolish that till 1941 the low rank kind of Polish embassy was operational in Budapest. With the Polish eagle over the entrance.

When Poles formed their underground, the route through Hungary was one of the most popular ways to escape from occupied Poland to the free world.

Who helped Poles in Hungary? Everybody. The government, the Church, charities, average people.

Thanks a lot.

In Return the Poles never ratified the ghastly Trianon treaty. So the thanks are reciprocated.

And sent substantial aid during Budapest Revolt 1956....

Yes, it was sort of partitions for Hungary:
The Treaty of Trianon was the peace agreement signed in 1920, at the end of World War I, between the Allies of World War I and Hungary (one of the successor states to Austria-Hungary).[1][2][3][4] The treaty regulated the status of an independent Hungarian state and defined its borders. Compared to the pre-war Kingdom of Hungary (which was part of Austria-Hungary),
