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.
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. A situation where people get a tad angry or worried about something that is not that important. The literal translation is – hills were shaking, a mouse was born.
