Translation: trumpet [noun, f]

Trobenta can be heard in many bands that play Slovenian folk music. However, harmonika (accordion) is probably most often associated with this type of music.

(I like to listen to jazz. I especially like the sound of a trumpet.)

Trobenta, klarinet, bobni… Potrebujemo samo še pevca, pa imamo skupino!

Trobentica je znanilka pomladi.
(Primrose is a herald of spring.)

Listen to the pronunciation of Slovenian words and phrases.


Primrose is not named “trobentica” by coincident. Early in spring, when you’re walking in a park or a garden, pick up one primrose blossom and blow through its stalk. Did you hear it?
