    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. :)

    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 :)

    Again, thanks for your help :)
