The Budapest Stock Exchange stepped on the spot. The Hungarian benchmark index Bux went out of trading with a slight drop of 0.02 percent to 36,340.47 points. Previously, it had risen for three trading days in a row. Among the index heavyweights, only the stocks in OTP Bank increased significantly by 2.3 percent.

Among the individual values, the shares of PKO Bank Polski slipped with a minus of 3.7 percent to the lower end of the Wig-20. The bank’s net profit slumped in the first quarter. The decline was even more pronounced than analysts expected. Other bank stocks like Bank Pekao with minus 3.6 percent and Alior Bank with minus 3 percent were also under pressure.

The heads of the two neighboring cities of Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice, Lord Mayor René Wilke (Linke) and Mariusz Olejniczak, celebrated the opening of Poland’s borders. On Saturday night at midnight they walked up to each other on the city bridge and embraced there. "It was a very emotional, special moment"said Wilke on Saturday the German press agency. "It was a gesture by very, very many people on both sides of the Oder." With the opening of the border, Polish customers could shop in Frankfurt (Oder) again and Germans in Poland, it would also be easier for hundreds of schoolchildren and daycare children.

After almost three months, Poland reopened its borders with all EU neighboring countries on Saturday night. They had been closed to protect against the corona virus. This meant that returnees were required to quarantine for two weeks, which led to problems and protests. Exceptions were made later for commuters.

Poland reopened its borders with all EU neighboring countries after just under three months. The closure ended on Saturday night due to the Corona crisis. This means that there are no fever controls and no quarantine requirements for travelers from the EU, said a spokeswoman for the Polish border guards on Saturday, according to the PAP news agency. "We return to free travel."

According to the Polish border guards, around 2.5 million people were checked in the almost three months the border was closed, just under two million of them at the border crossings to Germany. A total of 270 people tried to go against the regulations on Polish territory. There were 105 such cases on the German-Polish border, including 51 Polish and 24 Ukrainian nationals.

The opening was celebrated in Poland and Germany: The bosses of the two neighboring cities of Frankfurt (Oder) and Słubice, Lord Mayor René Wilke (left) and Mariusz Olejniczak, approached each other on the city bridge at midnight and hugged. "It was a very emotional, special moment"said Wilke of the German press agency. "It was a gesture by very, very many people on both sides of the Oder." He said to his colleague: "Good to see you!"

The mayors of Görlitz and the neighboring Polish town of Zgorzelec reopened the border fence on Saturday night with bolt cutters. At midnight Octavian Ursu (CDU) and his Polish colleague Rafal Gronicz cut the chains of the fence on the old town bridge. This had separated the cities from one another for several months. Around 400 to 500 people are said to have been on site on the German and Polish sides. Afterwards, numerous people celebrated the opening.

On Usedom, which belongs partly to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and partly to Poland, the relief at the opening of the German-Polish border was great. Hotels and restaurants on Usedom are no longer conceivable without Polish staff. According to the spa director of the three imperial baths Bansin, Heringsdorf and Ahlbeck, Thomas Heilmann, individual tourism companies have up to 80 percent Polish employees. On average it is 15 to 20 percent.

In mid-March, the national conservative government in Warsaw closed the EU’s internal borders to foreigners as a protective measure against the further spread of the corona virus. Exceptions were made for people with permanent residence permits, truck drivers and diplomats. Poles returning from abroad had to be quarantined for 14 days. The introduction of this regulation hit commuters on the German-Polish border particularly hard. An exemption was agreed for them later.

This is the end of a difficult time for the border regions. Now many Polish customers could shop in Frankfurt (Oder) again and Germans could go to Poland to shop, said the mayor. It will also be easier to make family visits again, and it will also be easier for hundreds of schoolchildren and daycare children. "It felt like part of us was cut off"said Wilke about the closed border.

The controls at the Lithuanian-Polish border had been canceled since Friday. Since midnight on Saturday, this also applies to the borders with Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The requirements for travelers from non-EU countries have been relaxed. Controls at the borders with Ukraine, Belarus and the Russian exclave Kaliningrad (Koenigsberg) will remain in place. From June 16, there should be flights to destinations within the EU again. It was initially not clear when the international train connections within the EU, which were also cut for almost three months, would be resumed. International train connections to the neighboring countries of Poland that are not EU members should not continue to exist.

Citizens of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine are allowed to enter Poland if they are spouses or children of Polish citizens or if they have a work permit in Poland. Workers from these countries do not have to be quarantined for 14 days after their entry.

While other regions of the world are still badly affected by the corona pandemic, the numbers in Europe are declining overall. But the development is not so positive everywhere.

Summer vacation in Europe seemed unattainable until recently. But trips to other EU countries will be possible again in the coming week. The Federal Cabinet had decided the previous week to lift the travel warning for 31 European countries. The starting point for this is June 15, with the exception of Spain and Norway, as entry bans still apply here. 

The easing comes in time for the start of the holiday season. Time to take a look at the spread of the coronavirus pathogen Sars-CoV-2 in Europe. While numerous countries have recently had almost consistently positive, falling numbers, other European countries are experiencing new outbreaks of the infectious disease.
