English translation:When it comes to drinking and sword-fighting, Poles and Hungarians are brothers
Explanation:
moze tak?
ot, co udalo mi sie wyguglic:
„Poles and Hungarians are good friends, they fight and drink their wine together.” In Polish: “Polak, Wegier, dwa bratanki, I do szabli, i do szklanki.” In literal translation this means: Poles and Hungarians are brothers to the sword and to the glass. “

Probably majority of Poles knows saying The Pole - The Hungarian, two nephews / for a saber and a glass (meaning drinking-bout) , which in Polish create a rhyme "Polak-Wegier, dwa bratanki / i do szabli, i do szklanki".

The Polish people did not forget these manifestations of brotherly assistance and the Polish phrase Polak Wengier dwa bratanki (Magyar-lengyel - két testvér: "The Poles and Hungarians are two brothers") has been etched into Polish hearts.

"When it comes to drinking and sword-fighting, Poles and Hungarians are brothers", they told us in both these countries. And yet, it would be difficult to name another country, besides Hungary, that has erected more monuments to commemorate historic defeats; or one, besides Poland, that has more intensely suffered through the darkest hours of repression and genocide. The stuff history is made of.

„Polish-Hungarian meetings always have a special character and a very warm atmosphere. Poles and Hungarians are real cousins” – said President Kwaśniewski.
