last spring - is it wrong?

-------- i think "last spring " sounds like a very fluent translation . . .

I would like to know if the sentence in Present Perfect could be accepted: "Where have you been in spring last year?".

I wouldn't usually use "have you been" with a period of time that has definitely ended some time in the past (spring last year). I think "Where have you been" usually implies a period of time right up until now when I am asking the question.

why does tavaly come first in this sentence? I thought question words like Hol always started the sentence?

------- i think question words always come just before the verb . . .
