"Куда мы?" and "куда мы пойдем?" are the same? and meaning of both are these:

  • Where will we go?

  • Where are we going?

Yes, they mean those two things.

But if you choose to use Куда мы?, you should remember it's more colloquial:

Mother: Куда вы?

Children: В парк.

=

Mother: Куда вы идёте? (at the moment of speaking or in the nearest future)

Children: В парк.

Куда вы пойдёте? can only mean future. Use идёте or just куда вы? if you need to refer to the moment of speaking.

  • I would also add that I've never heard "Куда мы?" used by any native speaker (which doesn't mean you can't say that, but to me that would sound really off) in a conversation. So I'd say it's best to avoid using this short form. Mar 4 '19 at 22:03
  • @ArthurKazykhanov I can't agree with that. I have certainly heard people say "куда мы?" and I'm sure I've said it myself (I am a native speaker). But sure enough, there are times when "куда мы?" is appropriate and there are times when it's not.

IMO, those versions are used in different situations.

"Куда мы?" A typical context: a small group of people walks down the street but unexpectedly for the speaker everyone else changes their direction and that's when the question is asked. Its sense: 'where are we heading to now?' The question is incomplete since the verb идём (going/heading to) is omitted.

"Куда мы пойдем? (Where shall we go?) That's simply about plans for the nearest future.

  • It is nuanced: "Куда мы пойдём" vs "Куда мы идём" (+1 anyways)
