well, where does zburati come from ? Hungarian, Serb, Bulgarian, Turkish ? sounds very exotic to my ears.

The verb zbura is the regular evolution of a Vulgar Latin EXVOLARE, that is also the source of Italian svolare 'to fly away'. In other Romanic languages, 'to fly' comes from Latin VOLARE: French voler, Italian volare, Spanish volar, Portuguese voar.
