Serbian is written in Cyrillic, like Russian.

Do you find Serbian to have similarities to Russian?

I know both are Slavic languages.


it actually uses both alphabets!! cyrillic and latin
i've been to serbia once and it's very weird like depending on the area you will find more stuff written in latin or cyrillic or in both

My wife went to Budapest once. I wish I would have gone.

I saw a movie called "Kontrol," which takes place in Budapest.

Budapest has lots of nice architecture. Hungarian is a very interesting language.

I watched this movie too!! It's weird but it was cool to see something that was scenario for my daily life. I love Budapest so much, the city is incredible beautiful, it has very good public transport and the city is very pleasant in overall. Great food and quite affordable too. Oh, I miss it a lot. Also, for living in it, it's good because it's very well connected with other interesting places, so it's easy and cheap to travel.

I have mixed feelings about hungarian. It's very difficult, but I like it written, but I couldn't really "feel" the spoken language even after a year.

Some words in Serbian and Russian sound very similar. I heard them count down from ten to one at the Olympics in Sochi and the numbers sounded very similar to the way they sound in Serbian.
