Learning Croatian – Phrase of the Day

You know some basic Croatian, enough to get you by, but there is nothing that will impress more than knowing a local phrase or slang that you can slip into a conversation. Croatia Week has launched its ‘Word / Phrase of the Day’, where we will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.

Today’s Phrase

Time

Tresla se brda, rodio se miš

The phrase Tresla se brda, rodio se miš basically is the Croatian equivalent of ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’, ‘storm in a tea cup’, or someone making a lot of noise for a minor issue. The literal translation is – hills were shaking, a mouse was born.
