The Difference Between от and из (с)

June 7, 2019 | Tags: Russian prepositions

Did you know that we use the preposition от when the meaning is “from whom (person or place where this person is)” and the prepositions из and с when the meaning is “from where” (place)? All these prepositions are used with the Genitive case.

For example,

Я иду от врача. I am going back from the doctor’s.

Мы едем из Казани. We are going back from Kazan.
