The Russian Tips&Notes jsiehler refers to says

"In Russian it is typical to describe objects as "standing", "lying", "being situated", "hanging". This is rare in English, and often sounds unnatural, therefore in this course it is perfectly OK to translate a "whereabouts"-verb with a simple "is", "was" etc. "

(Similar in Hungarian. It is the goal to accept "is, was, are parked" in these cases, sadly it is still missing at many sentences. )

Hi Zsuszi, I suggest adding it to the collection:
[GUIDE] Formatting in Duolingo
https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28284738$comment_id=28284898
because many people don't know this.
