The calm before the storm (English) — Momenat prije nego sto 'oluja' zapocne ,misleci na momenat smirenja prije nego sto osjecaj ljutnje i bijesa ne obuzme tijelo ili um,osjecaj nakon dugog nakupljanja u sebi.

The calm before the storm — Literally: The quiet before the storm.

This can be used to describe the feeling of a build up of tension and refers to the perception that before a storm begins, there is a period of calm.
