  • DOBRO JUTRO

To greet people more formally, in the morning, until 9 or 10 o’clock, you can say “Good morning” = DOBRO JUTRO.

The common response to DOBRO JUTRO is DOBRO JUTRO, also.

  • WHY DOBRO?

Most students ask me why “dobar dan” and then “dobrO jutro”?

The reason for the change is that “dobar” is an adjective which agrees with the noun it describes. In Serbian, most times it rhymes with the noun. With words in Neuter Sg., such as JUTRO or VEČE, the adjectives will end either in O or E.

DOVIĐENJA

DOVIĐENJA is a greeting you use to say GOODBYE in Serbian. Unlike ZDRAVO and ĆAO, which can be used both when you meet someone and when you are leaving, DOVIĐENJA is used only at the end of a conversation, in the same meaning as GOODBYE.

It is a formal greeting and the best way to respond to it is either to say DOVIĐENJA or PRIJATNO!

PRIJATNO

PRIJATNO is a word which has three different meanings. One of them is commonly used as a response to DOVIĐENJA, or instead of doviđenja. Basically, it means HAVE A PLEASANT DAY, and the word “pleasant” is the actual translation of the word. 

The same word is also used to say “Bon appetit” and as an adjective or adverb,  meaning “pleasant” e.g. Vreme je prijatno = Weather is pleasant.
