    So at what time do the supermarkets close in Croatia?

    I lived in Singapore, where shops are open till late at night. When we returned to the Netherlands I really had to get used to opening hours here. I was like: "Okay, I'll just pop out to the shops." on Sundays or late at night. My mother would have to tell me: "This is not Singapore. The shops are closed."

    the bigger ones are usually open till 22:00 in the winter, the smaller till 21 and then you have the tobacco shops, some of which are open the whole night. you have supermarkets open till midnight in the summer.

    Oops, so a faulty plural there. Klinkers it is then.

    Honestly spelling is one of the most difficult things about Dutch. Yoi can learn the rules and all, but I feel you cant ever be really sure.

    Same in Serbia. Took me good few years to get used to it. We have quite a few 00-24 small supermarkets too.
