Summary/Abstract: This article analyzes the ways of translating archaisms and names of realities in the material of the translation of Marek Krajewski’s novel The Minotaur’s Head into the Russian language. The author concludes that lexical archaisms in Russian can be reflected both by means of full equivalents as well as with using various transformations e.g. semantic shift or periphrasis. Some kinds of archaisms have been translated using equivalents existing in the contemporary language. The names of realities have been adapted to the knowledge of the potential recipient of the translation. For this purpose, generalization has been used. The names of military and police ranks important for the content of the work have been transcribed or barbarism has been used.
