Translation:Good evening, thank you.

Shouldn't "Good night, thanks" work too? I was marked as incorrect

"Dobrý večer" ("good evening") is used as a greeting during the evening and night parts of the day. "Dobrou noc" ("good night") is used as a wish before going to sleep, so no, these are not interchangeable.

děkuji (vám/ti) - thank you; díky - thanks

No. "Good night" means "dobrou noc". We only say that before we go to sleep. It does not mean "dobrý večer", you wouldn't even use "dobrou noc" to say hi to someone during night hours.

Would this be in the context if someone was asking how your evening was or saying good evening to you? This sounds really weird.

i can see it, someone greeted me while holding the door open for me, and i return the greeting and show some gratitude while walking through.

Ok, so the Good Day/Evening/Night are similar to the Russian counterparts, right?

From what I've learned until now, I think so; they even sound similar

This does not make much sense to put into one sentence. Good evening is said when you are meeting someone, thank you when you are grateful. Seldom used together, usually separately.
