There are approximately a lot of transition, a lot of people have relatives in all three states, why do you ask?

Well, because I already told so: Border checks can prevent people from travelling, it is easier to not have border checks then to have them. Furthermore, inside the EU it is quite easy to live and work in an other state (with some excemptions). HR is not an EU-state (yet) and unless there are treaties between HR ans SLO about working in each other countries, people could face more difficulties besides border checks (like tax payment, insurance, etc.)

And most important: In the old days everyone in SFRJ learned Serbo-Croatian, but as far as I know (and what I have encountered on my own), not every Slovene speaks or understands it very well anymore.

Everything can be understood with a good will, I was in Slovenia yesterday, and here I was again today, and I had no problems in understanding.

There is a big difference between understanding and speaking a language fluently. Working in a country needs an other level of understanding/speaking a language then just visiting it as a tourist.

I can understand some Slovene as well, but for sure not enough to get a job there.

You're right, with this I totally agree, to work in any country is necessary language skills and fluent speech. There is a big difference between the main tourism conversation and language skills for everyday use.

Where are you from? I though you was Dutch.

Traffic signs marking inhabited area with communal name in Slovakia.

slovak-hungarian mixed area




slovak-ukrainian mixed area


and one of two villages with autochtonous german minority


The condition to use dual names is satisfield also in one borough of Bratislava (Jarovce) with noticeable ratio of Croatian inhabitants (Hrvatski Jarndorf). But I can't tell you why the sign is not used that way.

The dual names don't have to be used in case when the written name is the same in both languages. Then it depends on the mayor whether the dual signs are installed or not. A little problem emerged few years ago in case of Roma minority in which language all names are similar. Some critics has compared usage of such unnecessary signs to yellow stars used to mark Jewish people during WW2 associations of some people are borderless
