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…
Our ‘Word / Phrase of the Week will teach you a variety of words and phrases commonly used in Croatia, but not commonly found in language learning material.
Mi o vuku, a vuk na vrata (me o vookoo, a vook na vrata)
The phrase Mi o vuku, a vuk na vrata is basically the Croatian equivalent of ‘speak of the devil’…to be talking about someone, who then will appear. The literal translation of the phrase is – While we are talking about the wolf, the wolf is on the doorstep.
