Summary/Abstract: In the article the author tried to describe the ways of expressing a locative subject. The statements concerning the state of a place, which were taken from Russian texts belonging to the reproductive register of the speech and their translations into Polish, were analysed. The research shows that the basic means of describing spatial relations, both in Russian and Polish, are locative adverbs and preposition-case forms of a noun. It is also common to „pass over the subject” in both languages, which makes using the ellipse possible.
