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:

THM
Svakog gosta tri dana dosta

The phrase ‘svakog gosta tri dana dosta’ basically means three days is plenty for any guest to stay. If you have ever had a relative or friend come to stay in your place then you might be familiar with how the phrase came about. ‘Guests, like fish, begin to smell after 3 days” – Benjamin Franklin
