i'm just wondering what this means in context. it sounds kind of frankenstein-ish by itself.

It could be related to the war happening in Ukraine... Or not.

    It sounds strange in Ukrainian too. :?

    I'm not very familiar with Ukrainian history, but I read that the Mongols invaded Kievan-Rus in the 12th century. Sounds like a likely sentence for that time period. I'm not aware of any Viking raids.

    could someone please explain the context here?

    Sounds like directly taken out of some heroic epos of old times...

    Kind of an odd sentence. I'd imagine you wouldn't use it in real life unless you were in the war in the east.

    Maybe they're referring to 'the Night Life' of the city (?) People still like to go out and party sometimes.....

    Three years later, with no answer from Duolingo: I vote to scrap this sentence from this exercise, and replace it with something practical like: "I must live in the city" or something... anything. I don't think I've ever - or will ever - hear this sentence being said by anyone.

    Maybe its a goofy sentence, made to stick out in our heads and thus assist in language learning.
