So, I've stumbled upon an interesting question and, being a native speaker of Russian, I don't know the accurate answer.
In English, there exists a word night. It means the period from sunset to sunrise. However, I don't know a full counterpart in Russian that would express the same thing. I know that вечер means the period from sunset to bedtime, and ночь means the period from bedtime to sunrise. Is there a short word or a common phrase that would be able to combine both meanings?
Thanks in advance.
