Saying hello in Czech is a great way to show respect and friendliness when interacting with people who speak the language. It’s also an easy phrase to learn since it has a very simple pronunciation.
How to Say Hello in Czech
Hello in Czech is “ahoj“. It is a very casual way to say hello, similar to how one might say “hi” in English. Another common phrase used among friends and family is “Dobrý den“, which translates to “good day”. This phrase can also be used when you meet someone for the first time or when you greet someone that you have not seen in a while. If you find yourself in a formal setting, it is polite to use either of these phrases along with the person’s name, such as “Ahoj Jan” (hello John) or “Dobrý den paní Nováková” (Good day Mrs Novakova).
There are several other ways that you can say hi in Czech if you want to really surprise the locals. One popular expression is “co je nového?” which means “what’s new?” and can be used similarly to saying “hey what’s up?” You could also try using the informal expression ‘nazdar‘, which has no direct translation but carries a meaning close to ‘hi’ or ‘hello’.
The last option on our list is a local greeting. Many people like using expressions such as “pusu pusu!” (kiss kiss!) when greeting their friends and family members. This may sound strange at first if you’re from outside of Czech Republic, but it reflects the warm and friendly nature of people here.
