Word of the Day: "Slobodne Sobe" is seen (not heard) on signs posted outside of larger buildings along the coast. It means "Zimmer Frei" or "Rooms Available" - the Croatian word for "room" being sobe and the word for "freedom" being "sloboda." While the signs abound, finding an open sobe in the off season is a little trickier.
