I know two words for "excuse me" вибачте and перепрошую. But in what situations do I use either one?

Some people use them interchangeably. Other people prefer to use "перепрошую" in such cases as addressing a stranger on a street ("Перепрошую, де вулиця Хрещатик?") and "вибачте" to ask for forgiveness ("Вибачте, я все виправлю." "I am sorry, I will fix everything").

"Перепрошую" is more like "excuse me" and "вибачте" is more like "I'm sorry"

Is there also a word "улиця", without the initial "в" sound?
