Not exactly. Land = Ország. So Finnország is a literal translation of Finland.

Yeah... but what I said it was the coincidence that any language would change and nowadays the exact meaning is in Spanish (obviously quite near to other Latin languages)
By the way, the Moroccan city of Casablanca keeps the meaning (White House).


Related to other languages, I remember that when I was young, I collect several football international stamps and the criteria was to have multilingual but in capital letters that name related to the own country.

This is... everything in France would be "Stade de..." or so, never "Stadium" or other translations.

And any country had in capital letters their names. It was when I knew the correct spelling for some countries.

I just checked the strangest foreign names for Italy: Olaszország in Hungarian, Taliansko in Slovakian and Wlochy in Polish.

What's wrong on Taliansko? It is just derived from Italy

Thanks, corrected that one.

However, I guess that RoadUK's point was to point out that despite being in the same language family, Hungarian takes the word for Finland from the germanic form rather than Finnish (Suomi) itself.

Do Finns and Hungarians understand each other?

Sure. If both speak English. :-)

The common roots of the languages date more than 1000 years back. Some structures of the languages are still close to each other, but the vocabulary is totally different.

The structure of the languages is similar, many cases with add on prepositions after the word. No difference between he/she.

The word Fish is Hal in hungarian and kala in finnish. similar root? Finnish borrowed words from swedish while hungarian has many slavic and german words (same for estonian language)

The language in the Dutch province of Friesland is very similar to English in many ways.

Dutch: boter, brood en groene kaas.
English:. Butter, bread and green cheese.
Frisian: butter, brea en grien tzies.

In Indonesian its Montenegro, not Gununghitam (It's a loanword from English if I'm not wrong)

(Potential thread derailment in progress)

by the way with the off-topic... as you know, in the Olympics starting ceremony, Greece starts and later all countries ordered alphabetically according to local language (in the 92 they made something of mix between two languages), and local country is the last one.

In Athens'04 I think it was the first time (I really do not know if in 1896 too..) where two countries within those with more athletes were togheter:

Gallia and... Germania (obviously in Greek characters) were absolutely together because Greek alphabeth.

Over the past few weeks we made a road trip and with this post I would like to show you some of the 13 countries we've been to. I didn't capture every border post, because some were just plain boring :P (eg. Görlitz-Jedrzychowice, A4)
If you get bored with old and plane European border crossings just scroll to another post :P


This is the border crossing near Cave del Predil (ITA-SLO) on the SS54


No official crossing, but the view from both sides is amazing http://goo.gl/Z5UYE


Small border crossing ITA / SLO near Tolmin http://goo.gl/SH9Xj


Border crossing in Solkan (SLO)


This is Gorizia / Nova Gorica ITA/SLO - the fence is quiet pointless these days


Col / Dol Pri Vogijah ITA / SLO


Near Gropada (ITA) - My camera did not want to take a good picture of this one, but still amazing with Streetview


border crossing Rupa/Jelsane SLO/HR


border crossing near Plitvica and Bihac HR/BIH - bored customs officers - we drove there with a Dutch number plate and the officer asked: "Do you have anything to declare? Alcohol, cigarettes, some WEED? - How obvious :P


border crossing Gorican / Letenye HR/HU - boring but friendly officers there


Triple border monument HU/SRB/RO - in the middle of nowhere but still amazing


commercialised border crossing at Sahy HU/SK E77


After driving on roads in terrible condition in SK, finally arriving at the SK/PL border crossing Trstena / Chyzne, we were greeted by a heckload of signs

Thanks for your attention

So, you got to the tripoint of Serbia, Hungary and Romania? I guess from Hungarian side as you told me once. Did you have any problems to get to it when it's closed for crossing?
