Here we are with another Quick Croatian Class. You seem to be enjoying the set of blogs and episodes under this name. By the way, you might have noticed that this podcast covers so many different topics. You can find them organized in the main menu, under PODCAST. It contains a dropdown menu, and it contains all the different topics. If you’re interested in just some of the things I share, such as Folk Customs, or Legends& Mysteries, or Curious Personalities, or Quick Croatian Class, click on that, and only the relevant episodes will show up.
In these past few months, it so turned out that I prepared a bunch of seasonal episodes. There were several episodes inspired by the Halloween season, and then, throughout December, you’ve been listening to the episodes inspired by the Christmas season in Croatia.

It’s finally time for another Quick Croatian Class. A lot of you wrote to me saying that you had a great time listening to the first Quick Croatian Class that was published as Ep08 of S01. In fact, it’s been the second most popular episode so far, believe it or not. That’s why I decided to prepare as much as two of those for this season.
With this one, I’m raising the bar for you. Now that you successfully mastered how to say Croatia in Croatian, I’m dedicating this entire episode to Croatian tongue-twisters. As if the entire Croatian isn’t tongue-twisting:)
In other words, this episode might be the least useful thing you’ve listened to in a while. However, I promise to prepare another one by the end of this season, hopefully, a much more useful one:) Enjoy listening to it, or scroll down to continue reading:

This is the first episode of the Quick Croatian Class series. In the future, when you find the episodes with this name, get ready to learn some Croatian!
More specifically, I will talk about how the Croatian language can be both familiar and unknown. The familiar part opens the door to friendship. But only when you unlock the unknown, you will be on the path to true appreciation.
This first episode dedicated to learning Croatian starts with a mysterious word that confuses the unsuspecting tourists. They notice it all over the country, but they often have problems deciphering what it means. The word we’re discovering in this episode is Hrvatska.
