How to Say  Good night in Russian

There are a few ways to say “Good night” in Russian. Some of them are stylistically neutral and can be used while talking to any person, but others can be used only when talking to your family and close friends. We are going to tell you how to say “Goodbye” to a person before you go to sleep, and which phrases to use.

Спокойной ночи (Spokoynoy nochi) is the most frequently used classical way. It is stylistically neutral and can be used in any situation, regardless of how well you know a person.

There is also a short version of this phrase: «спокойной» . It is popular with young people, and it should be used while talking to friends or family.

Spokoynoy nochi

Хорошей ночи (Horoshey nochi) is the analogue of the English phrase “good night”. This phrase is not so often used, although it is also stylistically neutral and can be applied in any situation. It is interesting that the short version of the phrase differs from its English phrase. In English you can simply say “night”, but in Russian you use the first word from this phrase and say “horoshey”.

Сладких снов (Sladkih snov) and приятных снов (priyatnih snov) – these phrases are used in everyday communication and applied while speaking to family and close friends.

Similar to the previously discusses cases, there are also short versions of these phrases: “sladkih” and “priyatnih” .

Sladkih snov

These four expressions are the most frequently used in the Russian language, and as you can see, they are not difficult to learn. If you have any questions, or if you have come across any other variations, you are welcome to leave a comment!

ЭТЮД О ДВИНСКЕ

Etude on Dvinsk by F.Fedorov

The Baltic region is one of the most catastrophe prone regions of the 2nd millennium, especially its second part; it is the centre of attraction of ‘geopolitical’ interests of the European world. Probably the most tragic fate has befallen to the eastern part of the present Latvia and its multi-titled town of Dinaburg – Dvinsk – Daugavpils. During its 730 years long history, the town went through five rather autonomous periods of development, five different lives (German, Polish, Russian, Latvian, Soviet), and at the beginning of the 1990s it entered into the 6th period.

The history of Dinaburg – Dvinsk – Daugavpils is the history of five attempts by the town to begin its life anew; and this is determined not only by the fact that the town was four times burned down and had to start life from scratch, but first and foremost because each of these periods was characterized by a total change of ethnos and the socio-cultural field.

The present article deals with the cultural space of the town in one of the most efficient periods of its development – from the 1860s till World War I.
