Prepositions на and в with Names of Islands

August 27, 2018 | Tags: Russian prepositions

Did you know that  we use the preposition на with the majority of island names? For example, на Сицилии, на Сардинии, на Крите, на Кипре, etc. However, the names of the islands that end in “ландия” are normally used with the preposition в: в Исладнии, в Ирландии, в Гренландии, etc.
