    I'd say Latvia and Lithuania rather than Estonia and Latvia.

    Sweden and Denmark + Norway maybe?

    Japan and N. Korea? Why?

    I think this topic should be only about brother/sister countries of Slavs. No need to discuss Norwegians, French, Colonials or someone third ;D

    Thought for the sake of it Mordid, wouldn't South Korea and Japan be grouped together? While China and NorthKorea would be other group?

    As for us and Slovenes, there are many similarities yeah.

    The only they have in common is history.

    current imaginations of polish-hungarian brotherhood are result of nominalist positivism.
    hungarian-polish relations were always mediated by "hungarians" living in northern hungary – slovaks. in past, all citizens of hungary (=nobles, priests, bureaucrats, townsfolk) were hungarians. it was political affiliation, not ethnic. but nominalist positivism makes ethnic hungarians out of political hungarians, because "name is the same" (=nominalist positivism).
    this nominalist positivism is a common plague among slovak, hungarian historians, and i see also among polish ones too….

    Your opinion about the Polish-Hungarian friendship is always welcome.

    I tend to agree about Croatia (but with emphasis on the NW part of Cro, which resembles Slo significantly more than other parts of the country).

    Something else should probably be noted though – Slovenia/Croatia have some major border disputes. So there is some general tension between the people, and truth be told that a lot of people from each of the two countries consider the other rather an enemy than a brother nation, sadly. I'm just pointing this out since Slovenia/Croatia seem to be an exception of your list in this aspect, as the relations of other brother/sister countries you listed seem to be on more friendly, civilised terms. Other than perhaps Ireland/UK.

    You can also add Lithuania/Poland due to being a part of the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth for over three centuries.
