This exhibit covers almost 1,000 years of friendly historical interaction between Hungary & Poland. It highlights many important historical figures the two countries have shared or given each other: kings, saints, generals, and political leaders such as Louis the Great, St. Kinga, Ulászló I, Louis II, Stephen Báthory, József Bem and many others. The two countries have also shared historical events that affected both, including the fight against Turkish expansion into Europe in the 16th & 17th s centuries, allowing the escape of Polish troops across Hungary’s border in the 1939, and mutual support for the Polish Freedom Demonstrations & the Hungarian Freedom Fight against Soviet Communist rule in 1956.
