Croatian in Croatia


Asking for Directions

Most cities and towns in Croatia have tourist information centers, which provide directions, maps, and local information. It is also acceptable to stop someone on the street to ask for directions. Other sources of information are the local post office, police station, or a police officer on the street. If speaking to an adult (anyone high school age or older) always use the formal form of address unless invited to use the informal. Streets are labeled with blue signs attached to the corners of buildings or on a post if there is no building on the corner. Buildings and houses in larger cities are numbered with an even/odd numbering system. Numbers on residences can be found on the corners of the buildings; office buildings will have the number above the doorway.
