"Вона іде туди."

Translation:She is going there.

What is the difference between "там" and "туди"?

[deactivated user]

    Там ≈ in that place, туди ≈ to that place. For example:

    • Я люблю́ Португа́лію. Я поїду туди влітку. 'I like Portugal. I'll go there in summer.' (I'm not in Portugal now, it's a final of my furure journey.)
    • Вона́ лю́бить Португа́лію. Вона́ там живе́. 'She likes Portugal. She lives there.' (She is in Portugal, it's a location in which she lives.)


    I was wondering the same thing, so tam is stationary and tudy requires movement.


    "Там" is to "there" as "туди" is to "thither" (in case you're familiar with the archaic literary word for the opposite of "hither").
