1° Is that difficult? No.

2° Are original names commonly known abroad? Usually (German language being the strange exception here: Lüttich, Genf, Breslau, Laibach? WTF?)

3° Do we have to bend over for those who can't learn the proper form? No.

That's because Budapest is the only Hungarian destination.

The Rabáfüzes-sign: I think that those signs could be removed since Hungary is part of Schengen.

Indeed, but you tell the Poles

In many central European countries those border villages are signed. Luckily they're starting to disappear slowly.

Because foreigners may not understand Hungarian translations of Austrian/Slovakian/Whatever city names.

What does "vidék" means? Because "Újvidék" (New land?) reminds me "Felvidék". Felvidék is "Horná zem" so somethink like - "Upper land". So, it stands for a land.(?)

I was many times in Budapest and there are signs with names of Slovak towns just in Slovak language. eg, direction Vác - Šahy-Banská Bytrica

Btw, it`s about Slovak-Hungarian relationship, sorry other forumers

and there is also sign in two languages

Which should we write,the grammatically correct version or the pronounciation-wise correct version? Graz is pronounced Grác,and our language writes what is pronounced...

Yes,new land. Though county or something similar would be better,as vidék is used as "where agriculture is".

Maybe something like our "vidiek" - countryside?

In Slovakia are names of cities on signs mainly in their language. For example, Budapest is not on sign as "Budapešť". In Slovak are always smaller towns.

EDIT: I see, it is "vidéki".

There should be just Štajerský Hradec. It's to coolest name of this city. Much better than Hungarian or Austrian.

I think in Slovakia there are no municipalities with signed Polish names. BTW, does Zakopane mean "buried" in Polish as well?

Probably yes.

There are some signs, but not too much as in Silesia.

Bocanovice Boconowice
Bystřice nad Olší Bystrzyca
Český Těšín Czeski Cieszyn
Hrádek ve Slezsku Gródek
Jablunkov – Návsí Jablunkow – Nawsie
Mosty u Jablunkova Mosty / Mosty koło Jabłonkowa / Mosty przy Jabłonkowie
Třinec Trzyniec
Vendryně Wendrynia

Almost Basically if we want to bury someone we say pochowac' - pochovat' in Slovak. When dig in something we say zakopac' - zakopat'.

Probably Zakopane sounds bit more funny in Slovakia than in Poland. If we can say that cemetery environment might be funny

To bury can means both pochowac' and zakopac', but I obviously see the difference. I still wonder what is the origin of Zakopane's name, maybe there's some buried treasure.

Yes and Klagenfurt should be Celovec, Székesfehérvár - Stoličný Belehrad, Sátoraljaújhely - Nové Mesto pod Šiatorom, Miskolc - Miškovec, Pécs - Päťkostolie, Szombathely - Kamenec, Salgótarján - Šalgov-Tarjany, Mosonmagyaróvár - Uhorské Staré Hrady etc.
