Vukovar, Croatia, June 1 (MTI) – House Speaker László Köver inaugurated a new Hungarian House in Vukovar (in Hungarian: Vukovár), in eastern Croatia, on Wednesday.

Kövér was joined at the inauguration ceremony by Zeljko Reiner, his Croatian counterpart.

Kövér said the Hungarian House showed that “rebirth is possible”, referring to the city’s reconstruction after its destruction in the Yugoslav Wars.

The house speaker is on a two-day visit in Croatia. He will later hold talks with Sándor Jakab, the president of the Democratic Community of Hungarians. On Thursday, Kövér will be in Zagreb to hold talks with Prime Minister Tihomir Oreskovic and Foreign Minister Miro Kovac.

  1. Two & 3 Years ago, I came up with the Idea of a “Club Carpathia”…in which 20-plus Towns in Slovakia would establish as many as 20, “Sister-Cities” in Sweden…Most in southern Sweden, where it is no longer safe for teenage Girls to walk the Steets in Shorts &n Summer Dresses.

    Along with Swedish & Slovak “Sisiter Cities”, aware there are already a Dozen, Hungarian & Finnish “Sister-Cities”, which don’t need any Help from Yours Truly, I proceeded.

    Now the Difference between “Swedes & Slovaks” on the 1 Hand…& “Finns & Hungarians” on the Other, is worth looking into.

    A Swede who has taught himself, say, 800 Words in Slovak, could pretty-much understand, written & spoken Slovak.

    A Finn who taught himself, say, 800 Words in Hungarian, could pretty-much understand Hungarian…& the Reason for this is that, even though the Words are different, the Grammars are similar.

    As a Slovak-American…(Dzedo, “Michael Juhasz from Francovce” & Baba, “Susan Gazda Juhasz from Goraltovce), I have managed to teach myself 800 Hungarian Words…but can understand only Menus & Billboards.

    I really can’t say Anything in Hungarian

    The Plot thickens…

    A younger Sister of mine…a recent Widow of a former “Chairman of the Board of Club Med”, Jacques Giraud, spared no Effort, during his Time, to tell me how Club Med, starting from absolute Scratch, in the post WWII Era, developed into a holiday-making Empire with more than 200 Hotels world-wide.

    A Slovak-Swedish, Finnish-Hungarian “Club Carpathia” …an Entity based in Holcikovce, Slovakia, on the eastern Shore of Lake Domasa, I say, could repeat the Performance, of Club Med, 12 Months of the Year.

    The Role for Hungary, in this Endeavor, is to replace the Hungarian Helsinki Committee on Dohany u., 11/9 in Budapest, with “Finlandia House” at the same Address.

    Slovaks & Hungarians, on the 1 Hand…have Much to offer Swedes & Finns…but the Reverse is also the Case.

    The Crown Jewel of European Ceremonies…a Roman Catholic Ceremony know to All protestant Swedes & Finns…(but not to Slovaks & Hungarians), is the Crowning of St.Lucia in the early Morning of December 13th.

    This Writer, dear Reader, who is “No Kid”…I have lived outsede the USA for 15 Years…having worked in 5 Languages for 8 Currencies…but never have I seen Anything to compare with the sheer Magic, in the Basement of a Grammar School outside Stockholm, of a “Lucy Crowning”

    What Slovaks & Hungarians can offer the Daughters of Swedes & Finns , in their Summer Months, is a violence-free Summer Holliday…which, today, is ‘No small Thing”.

    What Swedes & Finns can offer Slovaks & Hungarians, are authentic, Roman Catholic, “Lucy Crownings” in December 13.

    While the Churches of Sweden & Finland are under Pressure to discontinue Lucy Crownings on December 13th, on the Grounds that they are “Racist”… (the worst Thing you can call Anyone in Sweden & Finland)…but considered” a “Mark of Patiotism” in Slovakia & Hungary, the obvious Solution, is to relocate Lucy Crownings on December 13th from Sweden & Finland, to Slovakia & Hungary…both Lands with the requisite, fair-complected Cuties of their Own.

    The eastern Shore of Lake Domasa , Slovaks, Hungarians, Swedes & Finns, I say, shall be the Successor of Club Med.
