I apologize for the ot. I was just curious when x-type said that Croatian radio sometimes broadcasts info traffic in other languages and didn't mention Slovenianan.

no, croatian and serbian are way more similare to each other than croatian and slovenian. but again, some croatian dialects are very similar to slovenian and Serbs wouldn't understand them at all.
i am in contact with Slovenians every day, so that's why it doesn't seem to be large difference to me, but actually there is.

And what kind of language was Serbocroatian, if Croatian and Serbian are different?

An interesting photographic report about abandoned Italian railways converted into bicycle paths, with some "before and after" comparisons.

serbocroatian is a relic from yugoslav times. it actually considers both croatian and serbian grammars correct. imagine czechoslovakian or castellocatalan languages. that would be it.

JŰf di Montasio, to be precise. Is "Ű" a Friulan letter? How is it pronounced?
