Hello Wien!

On October 31, 1477 our king Mátyás Hunyadi I. occupied Wien with his professional army, the Black Army of Hungary (Fekete sereg). So today instead of Halloween we should celebrate Hello Wien. 😛 😀

“S nyögte Mátyás bús hadát
Bécsnek büszke vára.”
~ Magyar Himnusz

“Proud Vienna suffered sore
From King Mátyás’ dark array.”
~ Hungarian National Anthem


“The Siege of Vienna was a decisive siege of the Austrian–Hungarian War in 1485. It was a consequence of the ongoing conflict between Frederick III and Mátyás Hunyadi I. The fall of Vienna meant its merging to Hungary from 1485 to 1490. Mátyás király also moved his royal court to the newly occupied city.” – wikipedia
