куда [ku-DA] (adverb) – where (to)

Куда поехал Сергей? = Where did Sergey go?


"Куда" is only used when the expected answer is "TO a place" (you are asking about the DIRECTION of movement). If the expected answer is "IN, ON, AT a place" (you are asking where something is SITUATED), you should use "где".

Где ты живёшь? = Where do you live?
