Description The city is one of the main topics of the modern reality, and literature is not an exception. While studying the city in literature, researchers pay their attention to anatomy, physiology and psychology of the city, as well as its chronotope etc. We tried to show some of these aspects basing on Republic of Shkid by G. Belykh and L. Panteleev. After some basic facts about the book and its authors there follows the description of Petrograd in the book. The dominant of the city space here is the school itself and surrounding streets. From the authors’ point of view there is some connection between the school, its pupils and the city so that they can influence each other. The city for them is predominantly the school, and the main city monuments are not so attractive for them. It is very important that even if the atmosphere of the epoch is so negative, the authors see the city in happy colours.
