4 Words that Might Help Save Your Life in Croatia

townThe first Croatian words tourists usually pick up whilst in the country are bok (hello), hvala (thank you) and pivo (beer), but after seeing a couple of tourists this week obliviously walk past this sign, which was indicating that walking under the building, which parts of were falling off,  should be done at your own risk, perhaps it should be mandatory for all tourists to learn these words:

Oprez – Caution
Opasnost – Danger
Čuvati se – Beware
Upozorenje – Warning

So, there you go, if you see any of those words on any signs it would pay to stay well away. It may help save your life.
