The article describes the little known and explored philosophical relationships between Polish and Czech philosophers during the Communist regime. Their main and rich expression was undoubtedly a long friendship between Polish philosopher and translator, Irena Krońska and the greatest Czech philosopher of the XXth century, Jan Patočka. The article examines the leading themes of their correspondence including the dialogue, the new subjectivity as an open soul, the Post-Europe as well as theological and aesthetic issues.
