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.
The phrase “bogu iza nogu” basically is used in Croatia to describe some place which is in the middle of nowhere. The literal translation of the phrase is– behind God’s legs–
Example: “I dropped off Ivan last night at his place”..”Where does he live?”…”Bogu iza nogu“
