Asking For Directions In Slovenian

The word for direction in Slovenian is smer (pl. smeri). If you are new in Slovenia, there will be countless occasions on which you will need information about a specific location. You can’t bluntly ask the question as it might be considered rude there, so try these phrases instead.

  • Excuse me, could you help? – Oprostite, ali lahko pomagate?

After breaking the ice by being polite, you may ask the next person about the directions for your desired location.

  • Would you be kind enough to tell me how to go to the bank? – Mi lahko poveste, kako priti do banke?
  • Do you know where the museum is? – Ali veste, kje je muzej?
  • We can’t find the subway station. Is it near here? – Ne najdemo postaje podzemne železnice. Je tukaj blizu?
  • Where can we find a park near here? – Kje lahko najdemo park v bližini?

Suppose you have gotten the information about the directions, but you still need clarification. In that case, you might ask for assistance from another person using these questions.

  • Are we on the right path to the mall? – Ali smo na pravi poti do nakupovalnega središča?
