One of the first things to learn in Croatian are the names of the days of the week.
As with most languages, the name of each day in Croatian has a meaning still clearly connected to the etymology of the word.
Meaning: “the day which follows nedjelja“
Source: from an old Slavic word which meant “second”
Meaning: “the middle day”
Source: from the word “Shabbat”.
Meaning: “day with no work”
To talk about doing something on a specific day of the week, the preposition u is used with the accusative case, for example:
Vidimo se u subotu. – I’ll see you on Saturday.
Igram tenis u utorak. – I’m playing tennis on Tuesday.
Idem na posao u četvrtak. – I’m going to work on Thursday.
When talking about reoccurring events which occur on the same day each week, the instrumental case is used, for example:
Subotom idemo u kino. – We go to the cinema on Saturdays.
Utorkom igram tenis. – I play tennis on Tuesdays.
– I work on Thursdays.
