Do you want to explore Croatia and visiting as many sightseeings as possible? Being in an unknown city in which you can easily get lost and miss the various things you hoped to see. Team coLanguage will show you not only how to ask for direction in Croatian, but also how to understand the directions you are given. Let's start our trip!
As in every language, there are several ways how to properly ask for directions in Croatia. In order to avoid awkwardness, first of all, you should approach to a person and say: "Molim vas, možete li mi pomoći ( please, can you help me) or just "Oprostite" ( sorry).
In the table below, we will give few examples which could be useful:
|Could you tell me where the museum is?||Možete li mi reći gdje je muzej?|
|How do I get to the airport?||Kako ću doći do aerodroma?|
|Do you know where the train station is?||Znate li gdje je željeznička stanica?|
|Do you know where is this street?||Znate li gdje je ova ulica?|

Marko: Oprostite, znate li gdje se nalazi katedrala sv. Duje?
Ivan: Da, trebate ići ravno do Gornjeg Grada, zatim skrenuti na lijevo na trg Svetog Marka.
Marko: Kako doći do trga?
Ivan: Dakle, trg se nalazi pored ulice Zagrepčanka. Prva ulica na desno.
Marko: Hvala puno na pomoći!
Ivan: Nema na čemu, doviđenja.
Marko: Excuse me, do you know where St. Duje Cathedral is located?
John: Yes, you have to go straight to Upper Town, then turn left onto St. Mark's Square.
Marko: How to get to the square?
Ivan: So, the square is next to Zagreb's street. The first street on the right.

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
