We usualy say "ahoj" or "čau" to our friends. If you want to by more formal you should use "dobrý den" = good day.  I'm looking forward to next responses. It's so interesting to see how people greet each other in different places of the world.

Oh thanks friends for informing me about the different ways you greet in your regions…that's really interesting !

I can see that culture plays a decisive role on the way we greet, in terms of the words that we use ….now I guess after this post..I will be able to greet any one with their own language.,,

emmm I couldn't find any problem pronouncing some  of the greetings that were mentioned earlier in this post….but I must admit that Russian language seems quite difficult!
