Days of the Week in Russian

There are tons of reasons to learn the days of the week in Russian, so today's your lucky day!  

Perhaps you need to make a reservation. Maybe someone would like to arrange a meeting with you, or you need to explain when a regular event occurs. Once you know these seven Russian words, you'll be able to use them in countless ways.  

To help you remember the days of the week, try using them in your daily life as often as possible – even if it's only in your head!

Pronouncing the days of the week in Russian


The Russian word for 'day' is день and the word for 'week' is неделя. Let's listen to them here: 

день

den'

day

неделя

nidelia

week

The Russian week usually starts counting from Monday. Let's now hear how  the days of the week sound in Russian:

понедельник

panidel’nik

Monday

вторник

ftornik

Tuesday

среда

srida

Wednesday

четверг

chitverk

Thursday

пятница

pyatnitsa

Friday

суббота

subota

Saturday

воскресенье

vaskrisenie

Sunday

You may have noticed that Russian days of the week are not capitalised like English.

If some one asks you: 

В какой день?

F kakoi den'?

On which day?

And you'd like to answer using "on a certain day", here's how you can respond: 

в понедельник

f panidel'nik

on Monday

во вторник

va ftornik

on Tuesday

в среду

f sredu

on Wednesday

в четверг

f chitverk

on Thursday

в пятницу

f pyatnistu

on Friday

в субботу

f subotu

on Saturday

в воскресенье

v vaskrisen'e

on Sunday

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed the lesson.
