Beautiful day

But something more than krasny den. Is there a different word for beautiful that means like "absolutely, wonderfully, beautiful".

I asked a friend over the phone and he said

Erekrasny den

I asked him to spell it and that's what he said, but I think we heard eachother wrong cuz that doesn't seem like a czech word. I find American Czechs don't hear well in English over the phone - there's always miscommunications. Smile

I bet he meant

"překrásný" since "p" and "e" sound a lot alike over the phone.

So does "překrásný" mean "wonderfully beautiful"

I am sure he said "překrásný" and it means very very beautiful; you can also say "nádherný, úžasný, báječný den".

Thanks Jana,

Which word would you choose for...

Smoked Meat + Pivo = Překrásný Den

Does that even look right or work together?

I would go for uzený + pivo = bezvadnej den or to nemá chybu. Both expressions are colloquial and IMO more suitable here.

Thanks for your help Jana. After talking to a couple Czechs we decided to go with

Pivo + Uzený = Happy Day

The particular person it's for, instead of toasting "Nazdravy" always toasts "Happy Saturday" or "Happy Friday" whatever day it may be. So we figured that would go best Smile

Again, thanks for your help Smile
